Fattoria Dei Barbi Colombini Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This has a big, roasted black raspberry torte of a nose with all the light toast, baked spices and apricot glaze notes. With air this gains a touch of tarriness to the fruit and a balsamic top note. Big and powerful in the mouth, the tannins have a slight unripe edge to them that contributes a touch of underlying bitterness to the dark, coffee toned fruit. The fruit is deep and expressive and the wine retains solid acidity so this has promise though it is a big, bruiser style of Brunello. Needs a few years to integrate better 20011-2020 88pts

The nose showed sour berries and herbs but was marked by a severe aroma of hay and stable. On the palate, it was soft with strawberry fruits but turned bitter and dry into the finish.

Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes, this Brunello has a really interesting mix of aroma vs. palate. At first the nose reveals roasted meats, toast and ripe concentrated stewed prunes. Then you taste the intense ripe cherries, plums and spices and then a bit later chocolate, more spices and black pepper. 14% alcohol.
