Description

The first Brunello imported in the USA, Fattoria dei Barbi is a historic estate that continues to be a pioneer in Tuscan wines. This Brunello Riserva is made only in the best years and is sourced from a special selection of grapes collected from the best of the estate’s 41 hectares (100 acres) in southeast Montalcino. Extended aging in oak results in a more complex wine with a longer aging potential.

Manual harvest occurs at the end of September followed by a pre-fermentation cold maceration (“cold-soak”), which consists of cooling the grapes at a temperature of 3°-5°C (37 – 41°F) in an anaerobic environment (under a CO² blanket) to protect the must from oxidation. This non-alcoholic, aqueous extraction results in an increased color intensity and stability, softer astringency and tannins and more body and aromatics. After 48 hours, the temperature is raised and alcoholic fermentation begins, lasting 16 -17 days and temperatures reach 29°- 30°C (83 – 86°F). After racking and malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in small-medium size oak barrels (500L – 20HL) for the first months, followed by three years in 30HL Slavonian oak casks. The wine rests in bottle for six months before release.

Bottle Size: 750ml

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Palate & Finish

    Intense, vivid ruby–red color with aromas of red and black berries, maraschino cherry and eucalyptus. The aromas repeat on the palate with added hints of liquorice and tobacco. Tannins are firm and tightly woven and the juicy fruit is refreshed by a lively acidity that leads to a long, persistent finish.

Origins

Sourced from the estate’s 41 hectares (100 acres) in the southeast area of Montalcino. Vineyards are planted at 5,200 plants per hectare with yields of 1.3kg per vine. Two types of soils prevail: gravel and clay soils produce wines with power, while more sandy soils heighten aromatics.
