    Winemaker's Notes:

    A lively rich ruby hue announces an equally appealing complexity in the bouquet, which has the classic essences of red berries, complemented by delicate nuances of oak and licorice. On the palate this wine is warm, and ample; showing a well integrated balance of tannins and acidity, a great structure and a long persistent finish. This Brunello reveals great elegance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark cherry and raspberry aromas follow through to a full body, with loads of chewy tannins and rich fruit. The fruit concentration is impressive, yet this is balanced and in form.

    Barbi's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino opens with scents of tobacco, underbrush and spices that lead to dark red cherries on the palate. Though medium in body, the wine reveals surprising depth and finessed tannins that give it a terrific sense of proportion.

    I enjoyed the mellowness of this wine and its medium body. Not as powerful as a Cab but not as light-bodied as a Pinot. Somewhere in the middle and elegant. As what I would expect from a European / Italian wine, the nose has a rich fruity bouquet and the flavors of dark cherries stood out. The mellow tannins were enjoyable for a nice soft grip. I sort of wanted to enjoy some cheese with it, but I declined and enjoyed my ‘special’ glass all by itself.

    This is one beautiful brunello and hope I can manage to save some in the cellar as this will be one to look forward to down the road!

    Wine was excellent but I feel it was misrepresented. Nowhere in the description did it say that they were .375ml bottles versus the normal .75ml bottles

    Stay away from half bottles- they age differently and cork quickly

    I only gave three stars for the fact that I agree with GMJ. (I have not tasted the wine yet (I was very surprised to see half bottles. I went back to review the order and could see no mention of the smaller bottle size. Not very good at all. I am sure I will enjoy the wine but also feel the enjoyment will be less due to the misleading info.

    I was quite suprised to find that these were half bottles. I knew it seem to be too good of a price, however on all of the invoices I have, it says nothing of being a half bottle. I would not have bought it had I known. I enjoyed the wine, but the half bottle/ and price left a bitter taste in my mouth. It should be made blatantly obivious
