External Reviews for Banfi Rosso di Montalcino
This is transparent ruby in color and scented with cocoa and dates. The rich tannins balance a touch of sweetness with light umami notes. It’s balanced in the direction of braised beef.
The 2010 Rosso di Montalcino flows across the palate with layers of lush, expressive fruit. The wine’s minerality comes through on the mid-palate and finish. I very much like the combination of rich fruit and freshness in this lush, textured Rosso. Banfi aged the Rosso in a combination of French oak barrels and casks. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2016.
