"Intense, vivid ruby red color with aromas of red berries, maraschino cherry and liquorice. The aromas repeat on the palate with more hints of liquorice and tobacco. Tannins are firm and the fruit is refreshed by a lively acidity that leads to a long, persistent finish." —importer

Wine Anthology review:
This wine is waving high the flag of the incredible 2010 vintage in Brunello, far outstripping its previous releases when it comes to critical praise. The wine's label prominently features the 800-year-old Colombini coat of arms, with four doves adorning a blue field divided by a golden cross. Inside, the 2010 reveals an elegant persona not lacking in pure full-bodied power, with a layered quality to the cherry fruit that suggests concentrated notes of candied citrus, cedar, and underbrush. This fabulous Brunello is one to treasure!
"Aromas of burnt orange peel and cherry with hints of dried bark and mahogany. Full-bodied and very tight and dense, with a beautiful fruit, tannin and acid balance. Finesse and strength. Best wine from here for ages. Needs until 2018 to show its true quality." —James Suckling

"Fattoria dei Barbi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino starts with a tightly wound personality that begins to unravel slowly, one delicate layer at a time. As it does, you become aware of dried fruit, cigar box, crushed mineral, plum, tar and cola. The wine puts on a beautiful display. I also loved the mouthfeel of this beautiful wine: It is tonic, tight and brimming with energy. Well-integrated oak notes give the wine a spot of softness and velvety spice. This is one beautiful Sangiovese." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
