Broad, smooth and quite full, with a much more refined texture and a stronger primary fruit component than the basic bottling. The sweet plum and currant fruit flavors are complemented but not overwhelmed by oak notes of coffee and mocha.

Banfi's first unfiltered wine, encompassing a full body and complexity unique to the genre. The wine is deep ruby tending toward garnet in color and has aromas of violets, sweet ripe red fruits and berries as well as cigar box, cedar and exotic spices like clove and cardamom. The finish is long and persistent. Poggio alle Mura Brunello di Montalcino is best exhibited with game, red meats, roasts, hearty stews and rich powerful cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano.

This is so balanced and refined and polished. I love the berries and blackberries and flowers on the nose. Full bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. So much there. Racy and gorgeous. Give it three to four years to come... James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Alle Mura 750ml

Lots of sandalwood, with blueberry and blackberry aromas and hints of dried flowers. Cola too. Full body, with fine tannins and a long caressing finish. It's so integrated and refined. The tannins are finely knit. Benchmark for the style and excellen... James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 750ml

Castello Banfi Chianti Classico DOCG 2006: Der Chianti gilt als populärster Wein der Welt. Dieser Classico enthält zu 100 Prozent Sangiovese - die Spitzentraubensorte Italiens. Im Glas wirkt seine Farbe rubinrot. Ein intensives Bukett mit sortentypischen Noten von Vanille, Kirsche und Pflaumen zeichnen ihn aus. Frisch und charakteristisch im Geschmack, wirkt er sehr ausgewogen. Dieser Wein passt außergewöhnlich gut zu dunklem Fleisch, Wild und gereiftem Käse. Der traditionellen Maischegärung mit einer Dauer von 8-10 Tagen folgt ein kurzer Fassausbau. Im ersten Sommer nach der Ernte wird der Wein auf die Flasche gezogen.Weingut:  Castello BanfiRegion: Italien, ToskanaRebsorte: SangioveseInhalt: 0,75 LiterAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Fassreife: in Barriques gereift (6 Monate) Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C    AuszeichnungenCastello Banfi wurde mit dem Spitzenpreis "The VinItaly International Award" geehrt, April 2009 Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Sangiovese

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful wine laced with red berries, flowers and subtle hints of earthiness. Soft and supple throughout, the Brunello shows lovely juiciness in its fruit and a delicate, understated personality. The 2006 represe... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

A bruising, powerful red, packed with plum and blackberry, but also stiff tannins. This will require some time to come together, but theres adequate sweetness up front. Best from 2014 through 2027. 4,583 cases made. -BS Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Alle Mura 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino is a wine of noble origins and impressive original thinking. Made from 100% select Brunello clones, Rosso di Montalcino is considered Brunello`s younger sibling. Rosso di Montalcino is aged less than its elder counterpart - 12 months in wood (half in French oak barrique and half in Slavonian oak casks) followed by at least 6 months in the bottle before release. It is deep ruby-red in color with a dry, round, velvety taste and generous body characteristics similar to those desired in a great Brunello.The color is a very deep and intense red with violet hints; the bouquet is of red fruits, raspberries and cherries, but also with sweet hints of cream. On the palate, it has good structure and well developed tannins, soft yet powerful at the same time. A very well balanced and harmonious wine.

Tasting Notes:

Intense ruby red in color with violet reflections. Fresh bouquet with typical varietal characteristics of violet, cherry, and plum. Full and elegant in taste, with a surprisingly long finish.
