This fine wine is made exclusively from grapes grown in the Podere Il Fiore vineyards, just over five hectares (12 acres) of vineyards to yield 30,000 liters of wine per year; in exceptional years, only the best third is used to produce Brunello "Vigna del Fiore." Appearance: Deep garnet. Aroma: The perfume is intensely aromatic with notes of red berry fruit, cherry, earth and spices. Taste: Full round and very persistent with balanced tannins. Serving Suggestions: Fettucine with wild mushrooms and pancetta, rosemary and grainy mustard rubbed crown roast of pork, marinated grilled flank steak on rustic toast

Wine SpectatorSweet berry and spice aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this well-structured red, finishing with savory and underbrush notes. Powerful and will require time to absorb the dusty tannins. Shows fine length, ending with tobacco and leafy elements. Best from 2019 through 2035. 36 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateJuicy dark cherries, tobacco, licorice, new leather and spices all flesh out in the glass. A rich, seductive wine, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore shows plenty of vintage character supported by considerable underlying structure. Barbi shines with the single-vineyard Vigna del Fiore. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.
