Its taste is dry, warm, a bit tannic, robust, harmonic and persistent. It is a rich wine with a strong alcoholic component, from 13% to 14% by vol. In the kitchen, it can be coupled with noble roasts, particularly feathered and wild game; it is great with braised beef, stew and aged Parmigiano and Tuscan Pecorino cheese. By itself, it is an exceptional wine for meditation.

Wine AdvocateFattoria dei Barbi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino starts with a tightly wound personality that begins to unravel slowly, one delicate layer at a time. As it does, you become aware of dried fruit, cigar box, crushed mineral, plum, tar and cola. The wine puts on a beautiful display. I also loved the mouthfeel of this beautiful wine: It is tonic, tight and brimming with energy. Well-integrated oak notes give the wine a spot of softness and velvety spice. This is one beautiful Sangiovese.

Wine SpectatorBroad and savory, with licorice, leather and tobacco flavors. Mulled cherry notes lurk in the background, while beefy tannins come to the fore on the lingering finish. Best from 2019 through 2033. 16,666 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThe light garnet color, brick rim and tertiary aromas indicate this is evolving quickly. The palate is more vibrant, displaying menthol, steeped cherry, plum cake, vanilla and licorice alongside bracing tannins. Drink after 2017.
