Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Takes its name from the free-spirited gentleman named Bruscone who lived in the woods of the Barbi Estate. Deep Ruby with sweet red berry aromas and earthy notes. On the palate cherry, licorice and sweet plum showing nicely. Soft tannins, well balanced on long finish ending with earthy herb tones. Tasting well still has room to age. Great value!

Sipping Fine Wine

Takes its name from the free-spirited gentleman named Bruscone who lived in the woods of the Barbi Estate. Enticing Ruby with sweet red berry aromas and earthy notes. On the palate cherry, licorice and sweet plum showing nicely. Fine tannins, well balanced on lingering finish ending with earthy herb tones. Needed an hour to open the flavors. Age worthy.

Classic styled Brunello. Tart dried cherry, with leather and licorice. Pale translucent red with massive tannin and acidity. Thought it was Barolo. 🤷‍♂️ #blindtasting #brunello #Barbi

A sweet and very pleasant core of cherry and strawberry dominates the senses. Wild herbs. Beautiful persistance. This is the best vintage ever of this wine according to my opinion. Superior than the great 2010.

Tart cherry, tobacco leaf, some big tannins that were relatively mild. With my lasagna, perfecto.

Fruity with a lick of spice at the end. Good for pastas. Ate with a rotole of ricotta and spinach and was delicious.

Bone dry, tart cherry, vanilla. Round but with strong tannins.
