Love the barest hint of mint that lifts and brightens the black fruit flavours. Full-bodied, layered and lovely. Drink: 2012-2016. 57513 14.50% D 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 91/100.

Fattoria Dei Barbi Brunello Di Montalcino 2006, D.O.C.G., Tuscany, Italy: Completely mature: dried leather, smoke, dried herbs, not fruity. An acquired and expensive taste, but if you love it, this is a great example. 928028 14% XD 750 mL  $41.95 Score: 89/100. September 1, 2012 Full Review
