Wine Enthusiast - "Fattoria dei Barbi’s Brunello is very rich and decadent with black cherry, plum, prune and tobacco aromas. The wine shows great tannic structure and smooth consistency. Very nice.

Le mien est un 2004. année 9. Voici ce que NF dit du 2006: 5 étoiles - Sans doute magnifié par la nature du millésime (année 10), ce vin fait preuve d'une tenue en bouche et d'une concentration supérieures en 2006.
JPF (1 sept 2014) Absolument magnifique. D'un rouge brique, très foncé, de grosses jambes grasses, des notes de cuir, un bouquet agréable sans alcool, persistant. Long en bouche, un vin mûri à point qui aurait pu vieillir encore, mais prêt à boire. Une belle expérience d'un Brunello comme je n'en n'avais jamais eu.

Hot, nasty, brutish, and short. (with apologies to Thomas Hobbes).
OK for $20 (theoretically), but I can't find value in the $42 it actually costs.
The fruit is limited, with alcohol dominating the palate; doubt aging will help.
