Accolades / Brunello di Montalcino / Vigna del Fiore

Monica Larner on 15 Brunello: “Picture perfect,” 95 points for Vigna del Fiore

Fattoria dei Barbi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore
95 points

The Fattoria dei Barbi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore unfolds slowly to reveal a tight core of wild berry aromas, balsam herb and light touches of smoke and spice. This is a medium-weight expression that offers the carefully measured acidity and structure to ensure a healthy aging future ahead. Speaking of aging, Brunello is released five years after the harvest, and tertiary notes defined by cellar age are always an important characteristic of the wine. I notice that this Brunello has embraced its age with particular grace and elegance. You could wait to age it longer, or you could also enjoy this bottle in the near and medium term.

  1. I have been to your vineyard twice and have really enjoyed your vino. How can I order the Vigna del Fiore and the Montalcino Reserva (Red Label)? I have one bottle of the 2005 vigna del fiore left. what is the cost per case?

    I pray that you are doing well over there with this COVID-19 virus.
