Fattoria dei Barbi Brunello di Montalcino “Vigna del Fiore” DOCG 2011
What is Brunello “Vigna del Fiore”:
The “Vigna del Fiore” is an unique vineyard: its 14 acres (5.7 hectares) are situated in an area where the vine is cultivated by our family since the XVI century. It is one of the southernmost and oldest vineyard in the whole area of the Brunello di Montalcino . The particular exposition and the composition of the soil give to this Brunello special qualities, with a very elegant bouquet and an harmonic and complex taste. The Brunello Vigna del Fiore has been produced since 1981; for its harmony and charm it can be drunk and appreciated from the earlier years in bottle, despite being a wine with an excellent capacity of ageing.
Colour: Very intense ruby red. Bouquet: ripe cherry, notes of amber, vanilla and clove.
Taste: Complex and velvety texture. Elegant with silky tannins. Very persistent.
It is a wonderful wine for roasted and grilled red meats. Excellent match for the complexity of the “haute cuisine” . Serve at a temperature of 18°C.
