Castello Banfi Chianti Classico 2012
This Chianti has an alluring bouquet of black fruit and violets; rich flavors of cherry and leather; supple tannins and good acidity for dining. Fermentation takes place with a traditional skin contact of 8 to 10 days, then it is aged in French oak barriques for 7 months. Bottling is carried out in the summer following the harvest. This is the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of foods, including red-sauced pastas, grilled meats, and roasts.

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.
