Rosso di Montalcino "COLOMBINI" DOC BARBI
“Colombini” label is a proposal that Barbi reserve to the most important customers of Horeca. We choose the best barrels of Rosso di Moltalcino and decorated them with le label used in the 50s, similar to the old “Riserva” version of Brunello di Montalcino that a lot of these customers collected in their cellars. These prestigious bottles with their great decorations are available only for the Italian market, as the main goal of the winery is to maintain its bottles inside the national panorama. It is a choice made for those shops, restaurants or wine house that gave us their trust during the life of our company. This offer can be only for them. Rosso di Montalcino Colombini is very classic. As its label underlines, its style is near to the one of the old bottles of the 50s and 60s; this Brunello is really particular, elegant, alcoholic and austere, with an extraordinary predisposition for the aging. It is produced, as the norm requires, with 100% Sangiovese.
