English is spoken (very well) at the Barbi tasting room!

The best tasting room in Montalcino? We think so…

Taste with us in Rome Saturday and Sunday January 16-17 at Sangiovese Purosangue

The word purosangue means thoroughbred in Italian (literally, pure blood). The annual Sangiovese Purosangue tasting is one of the top events on the Sangiovese calendar every year and we’re proud to be part of it. After all, it’s tough to find an expression of Sangiovese more thoroughbred than Fattoria dei Barbi. Look for us this … Continue reading
