Winemaker's Notes:

Pale straw yellow color. The aromatics are very fruity, with hints of citrus, tropical fruits and pear. In the mouth the flavors are ample, with fruity notes joining those of tomato leaf. The lively acidity gives the wine an excellent savoriness, good freshness and a lingering finish.
My Notes:

About Castello Banfi:

In 1978 John and Harry Mariani, owners of the U.S. wine importer Banfi Vintners, established the award winning vineyard estate and winery Castello Banfi in the Brunello region of Tuscany. A constellation of single vineyards located on ideal sites cover about one third of the 7,100 acre (2,830 hectares) estate. The remaining land consists of bucolic meadows, olive and plum groves, and woodland. Central to the property is a medieval castle that functions as a hospitality center, hosting visitors at a full service restaurant, enoteca and museum dedicated to the history of glass and its relation to wine.
