“Classy Brunello” with “outstanding balance”: 91 points for Barbi 2014 Brunello from Ian D’Agata (Vinous)

Fattoria dei Barbi 2014 Brunello di Montalcino
91 points

Bright red. Sour red cherry, violet and licorice on the subtle, complex nose. Suave and fine-grained, with pure red berry flavors communicating a restrained sweetness and an underlying mineral bent. Finishes perfumed and long, with smooth, tannins and lovely lift and length. A classy Brunello of sneaky concentration and outstanding balance. Well done in such a difficult year.
