Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) A super-classic of Montalcino and Banfi. A wine able to match the elegance and solidity of its elder counterpart with a freshness and directness that make it one of the most versitile wines within Banfi’s offer. Very enjoyable when released, it is also suitable for a long aging.

Winemaker's Notes

It's bright, lusterous, with a slight copper tone out at the rim. Aromas of spice, flowers, and red fruits are noticeable. There's even a slight hint of sage. In the mouth, the wine is elegant, polished, and displays almost a regal standing.
