The 2008 Fattoria Dei Barbi Brunello Di Montalcino has appealing aromas of dried cranberries, cherry and toast. It is a light to medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; with good/refreshing acidity, dusty tannins and a long finish. Drink now – 2018/20. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 - recommended for its value. Tasted Mar/14 http://grapeselections.com/benvenuto-brunello/
