The Fattoria dei Barbi 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers a clear and bright quality of fruit. This wine really hits the high notes better than most others in its class. Stefano Cinelli Colombini and his team have done a fine job with this Brunello annata. Beyond the dark cherry and cassis are elegant tones of dried herb, tar and rose petal. The bouquet reaches harmony and finesse. In fact, you'd hardly know just how warm this summer growing season was because the fruit appears not to have suffered one bit. The tannins are delicate and silky. (ML)
Ripe and savory Brunello with plum, spice and grilled-meat character. Full and chewy. A little rustic now but will come into its own in three or four years.
Good bright red with pale rim. Racy aromas of spicy red berries, sour red cherries and rhubarb on the nose. Crisp, bright and juicy, with an enticing easy-going sweetness characterizing the fresh and tasty red berry and mineral flavors. This medium-bodied wine is quite tangy and penetrating today with fresh acids but avoids coming off as hard; an excellent showing. (ID)
