Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 1997
from Tuscany, Italy
Notably young, deep color, unburdened by excessive time in oak. Complex aromas, initially of red fruit and licorice with a discrete hint of vanilla; a minute or two of patience is rewarded by aromas of coffee, hazelnut, and plum jam. Its softness is well balanced on the palate; it is silky and caressing, giving the sensation of fullness and tone. The long finish is marked by notes of spice and jamminess, a sign of greatness to come.
Great with game, red meats, roasts, hearty stews and rich powerful cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano.
