    The nose of this wine envelops you in a wave of deep, plumy aromatics that are spiced with marasca cherry and with hints of sandalwood and sage. On the palate the density of this vintage is truly present, while you could use the word rich for me that envisions more of an amorphous, thick sweetness, none of which are present in this wine. This wine stands up on your palate, is focused, with great length and has great lift in the finish. This is the best Vigna del Fiore that I have had to date and it’s destined for a long life if you have the patience to wait! The first winery I ever visited in Montalcino was Fattoria dei Barbi so I ‘ve always had a fond spot in my heart for them, not just for the nostalgia but because they were one of Montalcino’s oldest wineries and carried that classic flavor and structure as their style. That was in 1982, a lot has happened since then, better agricultural practices, some slight changes in the winemaking but all in all Fattoria dei Barbi still stands for me as one of the classics in Montalcino, especially in this vintage.
