92 Points, Wine Advocate - The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a steady and pleasing effort that shows dark fruit layers packed tight with spice and tobacco. Like many of the wines this vintage, Fattoria
dei Barbi's newest release is immediate and approachable. You can drink it now or wait a few years longer. It tastes just great now with soft fruit layers and generous servings of black cherry and plum. It shows a dense texture with sweet tannins on the close.
91 Points, Wine Enthusiast - Underbrush, mature berry, leather and grilled herb aromas lead the way. The ripe, chewy palate offers juicy wild cherry, cinnamon, menthol and a hint of anise while seasoned tannins give the finish a firm grip. It's rather straightforward but enjoyable.
91 Points, James Suckling - Very pretty and aromatic with floral, dried cherry and citrus rind undertones. Full body, firm
tannins and a fresh finish. Vivid. Drink or hold.
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.
