Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino a Selection of Wines Or Other Items Italy Tuscany Sangiovese 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Castello Banfi is a family-owned vineyard estate and winery in the Brunello region of Tuscany. Together with its sister estates in Piedmont, Vigne Regali and Principessa Gavi, it has become recognized the world over for its dedication to excellence and sparking a renaissance in the art of Italian winemaking. Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino is a wine of noble origins and impressive original thinking. Made from 100% select Sangiovese clones, Rosso di Montalcino is considered Brunello's younger sibling. It is a classic, savoury style that also happens to be a terrific value. Complex nose with notes of liquorice and plum jam, as well as a delicate hint of vanilla. The structure is full, soft and powerful; excellent and persistent finish. Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino is an outstanding companion to veal, red meats and cheeses.

a pretty good chianti; dark cherries, little acidity, some sea shell notes on the palette, and light-medium bodied.

Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2008 - Castello Banfi: Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2008  - Rotwein von Castello BanfiDer Rosso di Montalcino ist der jüngere Bruder vom Brunello, hat aber eine ebenso edle Herkunft. Das sieht man ihm auch im Glas mit seiner tiefen rubinroten Farbe mit violetten Reflexen an. Sein Bukett ist kräftig, frisch und fruchtig und zeigt sortentypische Noten von Veilchen, Kirschen und Pflaumen. Im Geschmack ist er sanft, weich und nachhaltig. Zu Wild und Käse von mittlerer Reife empfehlen wir ihn ganz besonders.Weingut: Castello BanfiLand: ItalienRegion: ToskanaRebsorte: SangioveseInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13 Vol.%Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18 °CLagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Auszeichnungen von Castello Banfi:"The VinItaly International Award" geehrt, April 2009 Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Sangiovese
