Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) This wine has pronounced flavors of black forest fruits, under layered by plums and tobacco. The Upper Galilee Merlot grapes provide the wine with a complexity which combines spicy aromas of Mediterranean herbs in a velvety, elegant body typical to the variety.

Winemaker's Notes

Deep mauve red color. On the nose fruity notes of raspberry and plums, but also spicy hints of coffee, liquorices and cinnamon. The complex structure, soft and round at the same time, makes this wine particularly elegant. Long finish.

    A succlent, chewy Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend with a pretty ruby color and intense aromas of coffee, tar, leather and toasted wood. The tannins are still a bit raw and beg for hearty meat. Tightly packed cherry and blackberry linger over a long finish. Castello Banfi performs the extraordinary vintage after vintage: Itrsquo;s almost a one million case per year winery and it continues to offer excellent quality on its lowest priced products.
