Winemaker Notes

Ruby red with garnet nuances. Red berry and cherry, light citrusy tones, candied fruits on the nose. Well balanced and persistent on the palate. Good structure with an aftertaste marked by red berries, plums and cherry. Elegant and savory. Perfect for important dishes, roasted or grilled red meats, game, venison, stewed wild boar. Excellent with mature cheeses. Serve at a temperature of 18° C.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Fattoria dei Barbi's 2014 Brunello di Montalcino marks an impressive effort in what was undoubtedly a difficult vintage. The experienced winemaking team at this historic estate has evidently made specific choices to uphold the quality of their Brunelllo despite the challenges of this wet and cold growing season. For example, careful green harvesting proved essential for even ripening of the clusters. The fruit here does appear evenly mature and there is enough succulent flavor intensity (with dark fruit, tobacco and cured spice) and texture to count on a healthy aging trajectory as we move forward in time. However, this vintage is fundamentally near and medium term, so I would recommend a 10- or 15-year drinking window. It also tastes great straight out of the gate.

90 Points - James Suckling

Aromas of plums and dried berries with hints of flowers and sweet tobacco. Medium body, redcurrant and berry flavors and a medium finish. Drink now.

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast

A supple texture and round profile wraps around the cherry, leather and spice flavors here. Firms up, turning more chewy by the finish, exhibiting a salty, minerally finish. Best from 2021 through 2035.
