(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.
Castello Banfi is a family-owned vineyard estate and winery in the Brunello region of Tuscany. Together with its sister estates in Piedmont, Vigne Regali and Principessa Gavi, it has become recognized the world over for its dedication to excellence and sparking a renaissance in the art of Italian winemaking. Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino is a wine of noble origins and impressive original thinking. Made from 100% select Sangiovese clones, Rosso di Montalcino is considered Brunello's younger sibling. It is a classic, savoury style that also happens to be a terrific value. Complex read more...nose with notes of liquorice and plum jam, as well as a delicate hint of vanilla. The structure is full, soft and powerful; excellent and persistent finish. Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino is an outstanding companion to veal, red meats and cheeses. (hide)
