The nose is rich and complex, combining different layers of dry fruit with tertiary compounds from bottle aging. A slightly aggressive tannic structure is beautifully enveloped in the big, fat body.
Across Tuscany and anywhere wine is made, nature gives us its bounty. At Castello Banfi and throughout the varied terroirs and soils that make up our constellation of vineyards, we harvest the goodness of the earth, caressing and nurturing it as we craft our wine to express all its character in every bottle.
