Winemaker Notes

For over a century of production, it is the most important red wine. In the cellar of Barbi Farm, one can see a collection of thousands of bottles of Brunello, starting from the harvest of 1892. It ferments on average for 14 days in steel tanks without ever exceeding 28°C. It is then refined for at least 2 years in barrels of Slavonian oak and four months in bottles. So it arrives on the market ready to drink, but with such a structure to prolong its life in the bottle for many years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the more elegant, understated wines of the vintage. Sweet red cherries, tobacco, licorice and new leather are some of the notes that emerge from this somewhat lithe yet totally classy wine. The 2006 doesn’t look to have the structure of vibrancy to support long-term cellaring, but it should drink nicely for at least a number of years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

Fattoria dei Barbi’s Brunello is very rich and decadent with black cherry, plum, prune and tobacco aromas. The wine shows great tannic structure and smooth consistency. Very nice.

Another attractive 2006 with tar, berry and dried cherry aromas and flavors. Full body, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Needs time to open. Best after 2013.

Fattoria dei Barbi Winery Video

Fattoria dei Barbi is among a prestigious group of estates that has played an integral part in writing the history of Italian wine. In fact, the estate is one of only five in Montalcino that have continuously operated for over 100 years. The Colombini family, one of region’s most influential families, founded the estate in 1790. The family has owned land in Montalcino since 1352, first building the “Poggio alle Mura” estate (now Castello Banfi), then “Argiano”, and finally they began assembling “Fattoria dei Barbi” in 1790, where they have produced wine ever since. The estate is currently owned and managed by the 20th generation heir, Stefano Cinelli Colombini, who carries on constantly seeking innovation through research and the application of new techniques.
