Tasting Note

Lovely, classic 'Italian wine' aromas of mulberry and dried cherry, espresso, vanilla and cream. Delicious - light, summery texture yet with layered, complex flavours of summer fruits.

Product Information


  • Tuscany is synonymous with Chianti, but there exists a treasure trove of high quality, glorious wines, which don’t bear the name, Chianti, or Brunello, because of complex Italian wine regulations… and these are the ones to sniff out, as , with their simple ‘Vino de Toscana’ labeling, they offer far better value, and higher quality than many with the ‘posh’ names. This one’s a classic; it’s made by a leading Chianti wine producer, but in an area outside the Chianti ‘borders’. It knocks spots off far more expensive Chiantis. Rich, textured and silky smooth, it’s jam-packed with ripe black cherry and plum fruit, laced with herbs. Italian reds have a lovely, characteristic freshness, and this is a classic. Soft, rounded, and beckoning, it’s an absolute winner and a great food wine – try it with this Sunday’s roast lamb, or with rich stews, game dishes and wild mushroom risotto.

  • The Fattoria dei Barbi estate in Montalcino certainly goes back a long way – the Colombini family history dates back to the year 1000 and they were one of the first to produce this ‘Super Tuscan’ Brusco dei Barbi in 1969. Do try this delicious wine (at an equally delicious price); it is a jewel bright ruby red in the glass, with a fresh bouquet of plums and damson. Soft and satisfying with smooth tannins and lots of fruit, it is a perfect summer red.

    Tender red meats on the barbecue like just-pink lamb cutlets or a hearty grilled Florentine steak
