2001 Fattoria dei Barbi Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #500313
Brilliant and lively ruby red color. The bouquet opens with well focused hints of fruity fragrances, especially bitter cherry and raspberry. Its complex nose is enriched by spicy notes suggesting white pepper and clove. The palate melds its freshness nicely with the alcohol thanks to minerality and smooth tannins. An appealing finish offers delicate balsam and mint nuances. The greatest attraction of this Brunello is its pleasant drinkability.

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino, a dark ruby, displays a perfumed nose along with dark fruit and scorched earth nuances on a structured, long frame supported by building tannins. Made in a style that is at once delicate and powerful, today it comes across as backward and austere in its expression. As it sits in the glass it continues to put on considerable weight, but ideally several years of cellaring are called for. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Plenty of blackberry and cherry aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate with fine tannins and a long finish. Tight right now. Needs time to open.
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. The yearly production of Brunello Barbi varies from 160,000 to 240,000 bottles.100% Sangiovese.
