Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant and lively ruby red. Its fresh bouquet reveals fragrances of crisp red berries, especially raspberries, and subtle floral notes. On the palate this wine shows a well integrated balance of smooth tannins and fresh acidity; then it moves into a lovely, fruity finish.
My Notes:

About Fattoria dei Barbi:

Takes its name from the free-spirited gentleman named Bruscone who lived in the woods of the Barbi Estate. Patented system of vinification, based on the Tuscan tradition of “May Wines.” A wine which was born from the extensive soaking of skinned Sangiovese grapes that rest for 3 months with their pomace. One of the first “Super-Tuscan’s.” Fattoria dei Barbi is "The" reference for Brunello in Montalcino. Barbi's approach of using tradition to anchor contemporary expressions of wine continues to position Barbi as a leading producer in Brunello. The Colombini family is one of the most influential of the region and have been an integral part in writing the history of Brunello. Fattoria dei Barbi's commitment to innovation and quality have lead to many "firsts."
