Winemaker's Notes

Brunello di Montalcino was Italys first wine to be accorded D.O.C.G. status, a testament to its aristocracy, balance and fabulous proclivity for aging. Under the direction of Banfis master winemaker, Ezio Rivella, our Brunello grapes are transformed into a remarkable world-class wine, perhaps the most respected red of Italy. Aged for a total of four years, including a minimum of two years in oak barrels, Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 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.

Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcinos regal qualities are best exhibited with game, red meats, roasts, hearty stews and rich powerful cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano.
