Brusco Dei Barbi 2009
It is my everyday wine, and I look forward to five o'clock. It is a most pleasant Sangiovese. I liked it when I visited the winery in Montalcino, and the relationship has only gotten better since. The color is nice, the aroma superb, and the taste is what it's all about.Add winemaker's notes

External Reviews for Brusco Dei Barbi
A classically styled sangiovese from the Colombini family at Barbi, this is lean in the middle, long and gentle in the end. The flavors fall between cherries and cherry tomatoes, an easy match with chicken cacciatore.
This Tuscan Sangiovese is light and fresh with pretty berry flavors. Oak aging has granted this red with a toasty cedar note and it is perfect for light red pasta sauces and chicken cacciatore.
Raspberry jam and hints of spices follow through to a medium body, with a woody and mushroomy character and a medium finish. Sangiovese. Drink now through 2012.
From the Colombini family in the heart of Tuscany, a great alternative to the sometimes higher-priced Chiantis of this region. Made with Sangiovese in an elegant, medium-weight style, Toscana reds are often crafted by some of Montalcino's top Brunello producers. Cherry and subtle oak flavors imparted from careful aging in older barrique (cask sized barrels) are in balance with soft tannins and lively acidity.
