Bodega Banfi:
Across Tuscany and anywhere wine is made, nature gives us its bounty. At Castello Banfi and throughout the varied terroirs and soils that make up our constellation of vineyards, we harvest the goodness of the earth, caressing and nurturing it as we craft our wine to express all its character in every bottle.

For the price I paid, I expected a bit more than what I got. Overall, a very good wine, but not as good as others I have had in this price range. Hints of oak and cherry with good tannins. A little dryer than I was expecting, but still, a very good wine.

Easy to drink. Moderate tannins and great with red meat as one would expect. Nice mouth feel and finish.

Schön dunkles und sattes Rubin. Der edel anmutende Duft von Dörrfrüchten und sauberem Holz sowie die feingliedrige Frucht (dunkle Beeren, etwas Minze) am Gaumen machen diesen Wein zu einem höchst erfreulichen Trinkvergnügen. Der Wein wirkt sehr harmonisch: Perfekte Verschmelzung von Fruchtkomponenten und Holzaromen, geschmeidig gegliedert die Tannine, kompakt und vielschichtig das Finale. Ein wunderbarer Brunello.

Impressive nose for the vintage, with loads of ripe fruit and beautiful flowers. Full-bodied and very velvety, with beautiful tannins and great fruit.
