Castello Banfi Florus Late Harvest Moscadello di Montalcino 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

This late harvest is a historic variety of Montalcino. The taste is round, full and extremely perfumed with a hint of acidity that gives balance in the mouth.

Savory orange marmalade and candied lemon peel aromas with fresh flowers on the nose. Fresh, nectarine and tangerine flavors on the palate, medium full bodied and sweet without being viscous, a touch of brown sugar, lemon Crema and melted butter through to the finish. Decadent and fruity with a spicy edge throughout.

Golden yellow, clear and transparent, very consistent at sight. Honey and fruity aromas, warm at taste, slightly acid. This muscat wine was made with grapes withered on the plant and later spending at least one year in barrique barrels. Very nice dessert wine, though very sweet.

I love this wine. I have given it to several friends who not wine drinkers. But after tasting this wine they fell in love.

Intensives Goldgelb; betörender Duft nach gedörrten Aprikosen, Orangen, Karamell und etwas Passionsfrucht. Im Gaumen ölige Konsistenz mit eleganter Süsse und sinnlichen Dörraprikosen- und Honigaromen. Lang im Abgang mit wunderbar saftiger Säure.

Here's a beautifully gold-colored late harvest dessert wine born in the same territory that produces celebrated Brunello di Montalcino. Castello Banfi's expression is thick and luscious with a long fade flavored by apricot, honey and delicately toasted almond. Drink this wine alone after dinner in lieu of dessert.

This sweet, rich wine is reminiscent of a very good Sauternes. Full-bodied, with pineapple, pear and honey character. Delicious. Drink now.

This vintage of Florus shows enormous purity and elegance and the various floral, fruit and almond aromas show seamless integration. The wine is thick, creamy and dense on the palate, but a zesty touch of acidity and chopped mint keeps it from ever feeling sticky or heavy.

Wine Tasting NotesBright gold in color. Intense floral aromas with notes of sage, honey, dried fruit and candied citrus. Extremely concentrated and well structured with good acidity.



This late harvest is a historic variety of Montalcino. The taste is round, full and extremely perfumed with a hint of acidity that gives balance in the mouth.
