Today I present to you a red wine that has been awarded many times since it was produced in 1892: “BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOCG 2005”. It is the most important wine in the Barbi Farm Fattoria dei Barbi for over a century.
This wine is made with 100% Sangiovese grapes and it has been aged in small-medium size oak barrels for the first months. After that the aging is completed in larger oak barrels for a total of 2 years and then is bottled.
You should serve this wine at a temperature of 18°C and is perfect with main courses of red meat or well seasoned cheeses.
The Barbi Farm is located in the lovely region Tuscany Toscana in the place called Montalcino. It has been bought in 1790 by the Colombini family and nowadays it’s run by Stefano Cinelli Colombini.
It is possible to visit the cellar of the Barbi Farm. Daily wine cellar tours are organized for singles or groups. For more information visit: www.fattoriadeibarbi.it
