Fattoria Dei Barbi Brunello Di Montalcino is certainly one of the “realms” of brunello and of agriculture understood in the Tuscan sense: it produces not just wine, therefore, but also oil, salted meats, cheese, etc. The estate is old and originated with the Colombini family, present in Montalcino ever since 1352 and owners of the Barbi estate since 1790. The vineyards extend over 86 heactares, about 20% of the total area, and have an easterly or south-easterly exposure.
