Fattoria dei Barbi Brunello di Montalcino 2015
The Fattoria dei Barbi Brunello di Montalcino 2015 is produced since 1892 and was awarded many times for its quality. This wine is the “heart” of our production and it is made with 100% Sangiovese grapes from our best vineyards in Montalcino. The end of the Winter and beginning of Spring were marked by heavy rains, which permitted the storage of abundant water supply. A fluctuating climatic condition in April and May gave way to a higher than usual temperature from June until mid August, with very little rain. In the second half of August providential regular rains restored the ideal conditions for the vine’s growth. In September, the temperatures kept mild during day light and fresh at night time. The regular and steady maturation of the grapes allowed a perfect balance between sugar and acidity. Intense, vivid ruby red color with aromas of red berries, maraschino cherry and licorice. The aromas repeat on the palate with more hints of licorice and tobacco. Tannins are firm and a fruit is refreshed by a lively acidity that leads to a long, persistent finish. 96 Points – James Suckling.
