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.
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.
