Winemaker's Notes

Aged for a total of up to four years, including a minimum of two years in oak barrels, Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino is a wine of robust character. It possesses a rich garnet color, and a depth, complexity and opulence that is softened by an elegant, lingering aftertaste.

    JS95 RP92 WE92 WS95 Gleicht einem Juwel. Das fand auch der Wine Spectator 2009. Die Kritiker schleuderten vor Wonne ihre Hüte in die Luft und bejubelten dessen fabelhafte Aromen. Im Glas erwartet uns farblich ein tiefes Rubinrot mit leichtem Granatschimmer. Das Bukett wirkt ätherisch und voll.
