Vintage: 2007 09/27/2011

An international style emphasizing smoothness and quality over local character, this is warm with dark chocolate flavors, ready to enjoy with roast beef. A great buy.

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.

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.

Wine Spectator ReviewImpressive nose for the vintage, with loads of ripe fruit and beautiful flowers. Full-bodied and very velvety, with beautiful tannins and great fruit. I love this. Best after 2006.Wine Tasting NotesDeep and intense red color; complex but immediately captivating, with fresh and sweet flavors: plums, cherries, blackberry jam, raspberries, all combined with scents of chocolate, cigar box, vanilla and licorice. On the palate these aromas are heightened and lengthened, with incredible persistence. The sensation of sweetness is accentuated, and the body is muscular and in tone, ready to impress for its power and softness. Sweet and soft tannins, already showing great balance.

Vintage: 1998 07/29/2010

Loads of mineral and dried flowers behind the ripe fruit and almost raisiny character. Full-bodied, with smooth, silky tannins and a long fruity, berry, almost fresh herb aftertaste. An exceptional wine. Best after 2004. 45,000 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1998 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 750ml
