Fattoria dei Barbi on Snooth

  • Fattoria Dei Barbi Colombini Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Slightly ochre in color. Fairly fruity on entry--red plum, raspberry. Fairly stiff tannin. Bitterness on the rear palate--this seems to diminish with subsequent tastes. As the meal profressed, I can't say this wine improved. It really seemed unbalanced. Read More

  • Twentieth generation heir to Fattoria dei Barbi, Stefano Columbini, sat down with Gregory Dal Piaz to taste through a line-up of the former’s elite and accessible Tuscan wines.  Fattoria is an Italian word for farm. The word is often used as a winery term.  The Italian root of fattoria is the verb fare, which means to make;  to fashion;  to crea... Read More

  • Fattoria Dei Barbi Rosso di Montalcino 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Right clear red color with a fair amount of light coming through. Fresh, tart nosesome red fruit. Enjoyable red cherry taste on introduction to the tonguequite light though. Similar profile that I expect from a Sangio from Tuscanymedium bodied, good, albeit, delicate, refreshing acid. Easy to drink. Probably not one that I would expect to su... Read More

  • Fattoria Dei Barbi Brunello di Montalcino 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Nice maroon color that might tilt towards brownish tinge. Kind of a musty nosedried fruit. Raisiny, dried fruit characteristic on the tongue that I normally get from Nebbiolos. Fairly full-bodied and quite round. Very mild tannin and very mild acid. Read More

  • They actually left out the name of the winery.  It's Fattoria dei Barbi.  Those are some really nice wines.  I'm going to call in re-inforcements and make it a party.  Read More

  • Hey, I hear that VTs are coming back, with one scheduled for March!  Not to steal the thunder, so I won't leak what the region/grape is going to be (regulars, watch your mail boxes if you live in the US), but it's going to be good if my inbox is any indication.I'm opening up the floor to ask the question, "Who do you think will be the host?"  Ma...

  • Fattoria Dei Barbi Rosso di Montalcino 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A little spicy with rusty red fruit, cranberries on nose. In the mouth this is a little jammy with a touch of wood ripe, and yet a little lean with mineral flavors and a touch of a creamy texture. This has an odd blend of textures, chunky and juicy. Sort of an under-ripe/over-ripe thing going on on the palate. 85pts Read More

  • Barbi Vin Santo DOC 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A deliciously bright and sweet, clean yet complex dessert wine. Lots of citrus notes make this one kind of tangy. It paired well with a lightly sweetened pear + gingerbread cake, but a sweeter fruit cake proved to be too much for it. This is only my first vin santo (so I may be biased here) but it is my favourite sweet wine to date. Read More

  • Fattoria Dei Barbi Colombini Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore 2007

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More
