Castello Banfi 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Special comment by the wine maker: The 2007 vintage is characterized by an unusual balance between power and elegance. Tasting Comments: Intense dark red color. On the nose this wine is complex with hints of red fruits as well as more spicy notes of liquorice and leather. Gentle on the palate, but at the same time particularly powerful and with a long finish and great structure.

Approachable, but i like a Chianti, with a bit more body and acidity

Exceptionally smooth, cherry on the nose, cherries, red currents, light oaky vanilla notes. Great with food! Castello Banfi almost always produces very nice drinkable wines.

Light, smooth wine. Enjoyed this with some parmesan pork chops and mashed potatoes. It was delicious!

One of my favorites so far. Bursting with a slightly sweet fruity flavor, just a hint of spicyness, low acidity and a smooth finish.

One of best red wines from italy, even though it is only a DOC. It proves itself by carrying out those fruity flavors from the sangiovese grape.

Toasted wheat bread, bacon and clove add interest to the nose, which is robust and loaded with black fruit. The palate is complex enough to trigger some intrigue: Cinnamon, butter and licorice support the dark fruit nicely. The finish is smoothly textured, and there's an airy quality to it. Quite meaty and solid, with a firm core.

There's an appealing earthiness under the ripe black cherry fruit in this wine. It grows more savory with air, gaining freshness and length from the bright middle. Firm and balanced, it's a good match for grilled hanger steak.

A fair amount of sweet character comes off the nose, primarily chocolate, berry jam and sugar beet. In the mouth, there's additional milk chocolate alongside dried fruit, herbs and a hint of citrus. Finishes solid but with starchy tannins. There's also some marshmallow sweetness to the aftertaste.

Cherries, strawberries and a hint of mint follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with spice, vanilla, and berry character. Long finish. Slightly lean, but focused and fine. Drink now.

Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2007: Der hundertprozentige Sangiovese-Klon ist von edler Herkunft (jüngerer Bruder des Brunello). Er zeigt  eine tiefe rubinrote Farbe mit violetten Reflexen und sortentypischen Noten von Veilchen, Kirschen und Pflaumen. Intensiv, frisch und fruchtig wirkt sein Bukett. Geprägt von einer erstaunlicher Länge, präsentiert er sich sanft, umfassend und weich im Geschmack. 7-10 Tage wird die Traubenauslese mit der Maische vergoren. Nach einem 10- bis 12-monatigen Fassausbau (zum Teil in Barriques, zum Teil in großen Eichenfässern) folgen weitere 6 Monate Flaschenruhe. Dieser Wein kommt besonders gut zu Wild und Käse von mittlerer Reife.    Weingut:  Castello BanfiRegion: Italien, ToskanaRebsorte: SangioveseInhalt: 0,75 LiterAlkoholgehalt: 13 Vol.%Lagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 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

Banfi Chianti Classico Riserva 2007 750ML


External Review

Smooth and stylish, this Chianti is meaty as porcini and fattened up with dark fruit flavors. It's sophisticated in its plush texture, though it hasn't yet lengthened out into complexity. Enjoy it over the coming year with long-cooked meats and murhroom dishes.
