Castello Banfi Chianti Classico 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Impressive nose for the vintage, with loads of ripe fruit and beautiful flowers. Full-bodied and very velvety, with beautiful tannins and great fruit. I love this. Best after 2006. Wine Tasting Notes Deep and intense red color; complex but immediately captivating, with fresh and sweet flavors: plums, cherries, blackberry jam, raspberries, all combined with scents of chocolate, cigar box, vanilla and licorice. On the palate these aromas are heightened and lengthened, with incredible persistence. The sensation of sweetness is accentuated, and the body is muscular and in tone, ready to impress for its power and softness. Sweet and soft tannins, already showing great balance.

Really, really good wine. Aroma has earth, plum and herbs. The wine has lots of power with blackberry, herbs and nice long finish. Tannins were initially strong but softened over dinner.
