fattoria dei barbi brunello di montalcino riserva 2012 750ml


Add to Wish List

Dry red wine, 100% Sangiovese grapes. This Riserva of Brunello is made with a special selection of grapes collected from our best vineyards in Montalcino. The ageing in barrel and in bottle is longer than the one for a regular Brunello, thus the wine has a deeper concentration and a wider complexity of aromas.


Intense, vivid ruby–red color with aromas of red and black berries, maraschino cherry and eucalyptus. The aromas repeat on the palate with added hints of liquorice and tobacco. Tannins are firm and tightly woven and the juicy fruit is refreshed by a lively acidity that leads to a long, persistent finish.



RP94, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Showing a heavier gait and footprint, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva will appeal to those who love the dark side of Brunello. The wine boasts dense richness and black fruit aromas with spice, leather and tar. What sets this Riserva apart, however, is that it never feels too heavy or jammy. That's the best part: You get a well balanced and pleasurable interpretation from a warm vintage."

WS93, Wine Spectator

"Rich and full of cherry, strawberry, spice and tobacco flavors. Balanced, with a well-integrated structure, though not as complex as some of its peers. Stays fresh on the lingering finish. Best from 2021 through 2035."


WE92, Wine Enthusiast

"Pipe tobacco, leather, prune and camphor aromas pull together in the glass. The smooth full-bodied palate evokes dried black cherry, raspberry compote and licorice alongside polished tannins. Best after 2020."
