Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore Fattoria Dei Barbi 94vm 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Barbi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore emerges from a parcel in Castelnuovo dell'Abate near Mastrojanni. Dark, powerful and intense, the Vigna del Fiore blossoms in the glass with notable intensity and breadth. Dark cherry, plum, lavender, Mediterranean herbs and smoke flow through to the textured, broad finish. Stylistically, the Vigna del Fiore is a bit richer and sweet through the mid-palate and finish than the straight Brunello bottling...94" Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media 02/15 "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore shows a saturated garnet hue and ruby highlights that are characteristic of Sangiovese. The bouquet is laced with dark spice, dried cranberry, rum cake, tar, licorice and anise seed. The overall aromatic embroidery is beautiful and long lasting. In the mouth, this Brunello shows a lot more grit and density than many of the other wines of the vintage that are more streamlined instead. Here, you get bold and plump layers of dark fruit flavors that make for a lasting impression...93" WA 02/15 "This is chewy and minerally with blackberry and dark chocolate character. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish...93" JS 01/15
