Barbi Orvieto Classico Archè 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

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. Best after 2010. 17,000 cases made. Pre-Sell

A very ripe red, with tar and raisins, turning to dried cherries on the nose. Full-bodied and very thick, with a peppery character. Tannic. Slightly rustic, but impressive in its weight and power. Best after 2003.

Wonderful berry, strawberry, plum and smoke aromas open to a medium to full body, with well-integrated tannins and a fresh finish. A bright and exciting Brunello. Drink now through 2004.

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. Best after 2010. 17,000 cases made. -JS 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. Today the wine remains rather firm and tight, but the raw material seems to be there for this to develop into a gorgeous, rewarding Brunello in a few years' time. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. ** Only 4 in Stock **
