About the Event

In the 1950s Nello Baricci first recognized that the wines of Montosoli, a cru on the north side of Montalcino, were of consistently superior quality and eventually bought a small vineyard there. Today, in part due to Nello’s work, Montosoli is firmly established as one of Montalcino’s greatest vineyards. Baricci, has all of their 5 hectares of sangiovese vineyard in this outstanding cru. Federico and Francesco Buffi, Nello’s grandsons, now run the estate 

The wines are beautifully delineated, and an authentic expression of this terroir, marked by an earthy, floral perfume, fine red and black fruit, and ripe, chewy tannins.

Praise for Baricci's Brunello di Montalcino

Eric Guido, Vinous, December 2021 

"Long before the concept of a cru or the fame of Montosoli was confirmed, Nello Baricci realized that this was a very special location, and when the time came that this son of sharecroppers could afford his own land, it was this location that he chose. Today, it is the third generation, Federico Buffi, who cares for the vines and raises these wines using the teachings of his grandfather; and I can assure you that Nello Baricci, who passed away in 2017, would be very proud. The Baricci wines speak of the soul of Montalcino, as well as the terroir of Montosoli. When I taste them, it’s the classicism, purity, regal tannins, depth of fruit and harmony that invokes thoughts of not just Montalcino, but the world's greatest wines. In a truly romantic way, this family of farmers, who also happen to be winemakers, are producing some of Italy’s hidden gems. I only hope that they never change."
