'05: "Notes of raisin and plum eventually gave way to notes of bright red cherry, underbrush, and a certain earthiness that continues to characterize Barbi Brunellos to this day. The flavor profile is not only beautiful, but is completely characteristic of its varietal and terroir. Notable in this wine is its bright acidity, which contributes to the great structure and frames the beautiful notes of bright red fruit. You can almost taste the sunshine in this wine even after 30 years. The tannins are relaxed and graceful but still present. This is a great bottle of wine."
