Wine AdvocateFattoria 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.
Wine EnthusiastForest floor, camphor, new leather and pressed rose aromas emerge on this racy red. The focused, linear palate offers red cherry, licorice, wild herb and black tea framed in taut refined tannins and firm acidity. Give this a few more years to unwind and fully develop. Drink 2021-2034.
