This vintage is excellent, deep and full bodied, yet not overpowering. Decant for an hour and taste it open up. A great Brunello from a great house. $39.95 VW

Schön dunkles und sattes Rubin. Der edel anmutende Duft von Dörrfrüchten und sauberem Holz sowie die feingliedrige Frucht (dunkle Beeren, etwas Minze) am Gaumen machen diesen Wein zu einem höchst erfreulichen Trinkvergnügen. Der Wein wirkt sehr harmonisch: Perfekte Verschmelzung von Fruchtkomponenten und Holzaromen, geschmeidig gegliedert die Tannine, kompakt und vielschichtig das Finale. Ein wunderbarer Brunello.

This is Castello Banfi's special bottling sourced entirely from the hillside vineyards that were the first planted on the estate in 1992. The grapes from this plot always show unique character and superior quality and can benefit from 2 years in French oak barrels. The Wine Spectator scored this 2004 94 points saying "Shows dried raspberry and cinnamon on the nose. Full-bodied, with an impressive density of fruit and round tannins. Long and flavorful. Just starting to open up. Powerful and rich. Best after 2010." Extremely Limited!!

Markantes Dunkelrot; attraktives Bouquet nach roten Früchten, schwarzer Schokolade und Kaffee; wunderschön balanciert mit grosser Struktur und Eleganz. Harmonisch und weich im Gaumen, reife Frucht und milde Säure. Warm, anhaltend und sehr aromatisch der Abgang.

Brunello di Montalcino was Italy's first wine to be accorded D.O.C.G. status, a testament to its aristocracy, balance and fabulous proclivity for aging. Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italy’s most celebrated and this 2004 is one of their best. Under the direction of Banfi's master winemakers, Sangiovese grapes are transformed into a remarkable world-class wine, perhaps the most respected red of Italy. Aged for a total of up to four years, including a minimum of two years in oak barrels, this Brunello is a wine of robust character. It possesses a rich garnet color, and a depth, complexity and opulence that is softened by an elegant, lingering aftertaste. The Wine Spectator scored it 93 saying "Has fabulous aromas of blackberry, black cherry and raspberry. Full-bodied, with wonderfully integrated tannins, fresh mushrooms and milk chocolate. Chewy in the end. We will see if this is better than the 2001 with age. Best after 2010."

We will see if this is better than the 2001 with age. Best after 2010."93 Points - International Wine Cellar "Good full, deep red. Sexy nose offers bitter cherry, raspberry, rose petal and a whiff of marzipan. Juicy, sweet and enticing, with lovely elegance and energy to the flavors of red fruits and candied rose. Firm but harmonious tannins frame the palate-coating flavors without introducing any hardness. This suave Brunello really reverberates on the rising finish. "Winemaker's notes: Intense ruby red in color with garnet reflections. Aromas of violets and vanilla, with hints of licorice. Velvety palate, with tart-cherry flavors and traces of spice. Well structured with supple tannins, superb concentration, and good acidity. Persistent finish.

Impressive nose for the vintage, with loads of ripe fruit and beautiful flowers. Full-bodied and very velvety, with beautiful tannins and great fruit. Seductive, silky, smoky red that is deep ruby in color with a nose that explodes with violets, fruits an
