2015 Fattoria dei Barbi Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1473971 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Ripe plum and cherry aromas with dried flowers and spices. Some lavender and cedar, too. Full bodied, tight and chewy. Needs time to soften and come together. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Fattoria dei Barbi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a extremely polished and precise expression that hits all the right buttons for those seeking a classic expression of Sangiovese. In appearance, the wine shows a bright ruby hue with brilliant garnet reflections. The bouquet is tempered and shy at first, but it opens quickly to reveal those characteristic aromas of wild berry, candied cherry, licorice and pressed blue flowers that are so beautifully tied to this mighty Tuscan grape. (ML) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good brilliant red color. Wild aromas of red and darker berries, flint and violet. Juicy, herbal and firm, with precise red berry and mineral flavors. Closes bright and long, with mounting tannic bite. (ID) 93+ Inner quote mark (4/2020)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Plum, cherry, iron, earth and salty notes mark this vibrant red. Lean and sinewy, with firm, dusty tannins plying the finish. This comes together well overall, delivering a solid core of ripe fruit. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Menthol, blue-flower and tilled soil aromas emerge from the glass along with a whiff of dried tobacco leaf. The full-bodied palate offers dried cherry, vanilla and clove before finishing on a note of powdered sage. Close-grained tannins grip the close. (KO) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

K&L Notes

91 points Eric Guido for Vinous: "The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows forest berries with cooling minty herbs and hints of cedar, as pretty florals and earth tones develop in the glass. On the palate, soft textures give way to juicy acids with a dark mineral twang, as sweet and sour cherry fills the senses while inner florals make for a pleasing finale. The finish is medium in length, with a salty mineral coating that begs you to take another sip, as dried red fruits fade. This is a remarkably lifted and pretty expression of Barbi, balancing the warmth of the year nicely with its zesty appeal." (04/2020)
