This red wine comes from the southern part of Tuscany and it is made mostly with Sangiovese , which locally is called “Morellino”, and 15% Merlot. The vineyards are located on a hill at 250 metres on the sea level not far from the Tyrrhenian sea, with a very particular micro climate: long, sunny and bright days, cooler nights freshened by the sea breeze. All these factors contribute to a well structured and balanced wine with soft tannins and a very lively acidity. Even if the making of Morellino goes back for centuries its approach is very modern and pleasant .
Fattoria dei Barbi is ””The”” reference for Brunello in Montalcino. Barbi’s approach of using tradition to anchor contemporary expressions of wine continues to position Barbi as a leading producer in Brunello. The Colombini family is one of the most influential of the Region and have been an integral part in writing the history of Brunello. Fattoria dei Barbi’s commitment to innovation and quality have lead to many ””firsts””, namely; The 1st exporters of Brunello, 1817; the 1st Brunello awarded by the state (Italy), 1892; the pioneers of wine tourism, 1938; the 1st Tuscan cellar open to visitors, 1954; producer of the 1st Super Tuscan, Brusco dei Barbi, 1969.
