Leading Canadian wine writer Michael Godel (above) visited Fattoria dei Barbi earlier this month and tasted with owner and winemaker Stefano Cinelli Colombini. He was traveling through Tuscany with American sommelier and television personality Jeff Porter. The two were there filming an episode for Jeff’s Sip Trip, his video series devoted to the wines and foodways of Italy.
“A Montalcino education begins with this man,” wrote Michael on his Facebook, “Stefano Cinelli Colombini at Fattoria Dei Barbi — Museums housed of edifice and in mind. What a visit. #brunellodimontalcino #montalcinobootcamp.”
