Winemaker's Notes

A lively rich ruby hue announces an equally appealing complexity in the bouquet, which has the classic essences of red berries, complemented by delicate nuances of oak and licorice. On the palate this wine is warm, and ample; showing a well integrated balance of tannins and acidity, a great structure and a long persistent finish. This Brunello reveals great elegance.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark cherry and raspberry aromas follow through to a full body, with loads of chewy tannins and rich fruit. The fruit concentration is impressive, yet this is balanced and in form."
93 Points

"Barbi's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino opens with scents of tobacco, underbrush and spices that lead to dark red cherries on the palate. Though medium in body, the wine reveals surprising depth and finessed tannins that give it a terrific sense of proportion."

Style: Smooth & Supple
I enjoyed the mellowness of this wine and its medium body. Not as powerful as a Cab but not as light-bodied as a Pinot. Somewhere in the middle and elegant. As what I would expect from a European / Italian wine, the nose has a rich fruity bouquet and the flavors of dark cherries stood out. The mellow tannins were enjoyable for a nice soft grip. I sort of wanted to enjoy some cheese with it, but I declined and enjoyed my ‘special’ glass all by itself.

For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
