A super-classic of Montalcino and Banfi. A wine able to match the elegance and solidity of its elder counterpart with a freshness and directness that make it one of the most versitile wines within Banfi's offer. Very enjoyable when released, it is also suitable for a long aging.
An ideal match with game and medium-aged cheese. The remarkable structure allows for good aging.
"Dark ruby-red. Balsamic vanilla complements ripe dark plum and blueberry syrup on the nose. Rich, dense and suave, with a cherry cola quality to the ripe dark fruit and herbal flavors. Finishes long and very clean, with rising, slightly drying tannins, but there's so much fruit here that the tannins don't dominate. This richer, riper style of Rosso may have been just a little too extracted, but I think it will have quite a few fans. "

"Dried strawberry and cherry aromas follow through to a medium body with integrated tannins and a fresh finish. "
Smooth & Supple
soft and full, excellent and a surprise to me.
Good to very good, no bargain - priced about right.
