Castello Banfi Chianti Classico 2007

This was just not doing it for me last night. Had it before dinner as we were experiencing a pretty cold day in between to beautiful 70 degree days. It was dry and rough in the mouth. Felt like a low grade sand paper. Not much fruit or character to it. The 2006 was far better in my opinion.
Four and a half glasses
External Reviews for Castello Banfi Chianti Classico
The Banfi Chianti Classico is predominantly Sangiovese with small amounts of Canaiolo Nero and Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium dark ruby in color, it offers fresh dark fruit aromas of boysenberry and blackberry and a palate of flavorful ripe fruit. It also exhibits excellent balance and structure and a persistent finish. A lovely wine offered at a great price. 89 Points.
Banfi Chianti Classico 2007 and all other wine from Banfi are readily available to ship at discount prices. We carry many premium wine from across the world.
A basic wine that's in proportion. The bouquet offers bacon, menthol and rubber along with nuances of espresso and modest complexity. Boysenberry and blackberry flavors carry notes of cinnamon and vanilla, while the feel is soft yet substantive. Not a thriller, but eminently drinkable.
