A bottle of 1979 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva produced and bottled by Fattoria Dei Barbi.
Brunello di Montalcino is produced in Tuscany in vineyards surrounding the town of Montalcino, in the province of Siena, located about 80 kilometres south of Florence. In 1980, Brunello di Montalcino was among the four wines awarded the first Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) designation. Today it is one of Italy's best-known and most expensive wines and is made with 100% Sangiovese.
Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note general wear. This appears to have leaked in the past, but is not currently leaking. There appears to be a slight imperfection/dip in the glass behind the label, but this appears to be secure.
The Whisky.Auction team has inspected this lot and found it to be suitable for sale. However, please note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults. Older bottles often contain sediment. Wines are more fragile than spirits and older wines may be listed, at our discretion, for their historical interest rather than their drinkability. We can in no way guarantee that they are still within their plateau of maturity or to the buyer’s taste.
This bottle does not appear to be leaking. While we take every care to pack bottles securely we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit.
