Winemaker Notes

The 1997 vintage of this wine was ranked #3 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2002

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.

JS 95
James Suckling
Lots of sandalwood, with blueberry and blackberry aromas and hints of dried flowers. Cola too. Full body, with fine tannins and a long caressing finish. It’s so integrated and refined. The tannins are finely knit. Benchmark for the style and excellence of the vintage. Best after 2013.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful wine laced with red berries, flowers and subtle hints of earthiness. Soft and supple throughout, the Brunello shows lovely juiciness in its fruit and a delicate, understated personality. The 2006 represents yet another step in the more elegant, refined direction the estate has taken in recent years. The 2006 Brunello was aged in equal parts cask and French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Castello Banfi’s 2006 Brunello opens with smooth and soft cherry flavors and is packed tight with background aromatics that include tobacco, cola, leather and more dark fruit. The wine’s texture is silky, crisp and long-lasting.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Smooth and round, this red offers cherry, bitter almond, spice and woodsy notes. The tannins are dense, but this is balanced overall and lingers on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2022. 45,830 cases made
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
A substantial and forceful sangiovese grosso, this has dark scents of fruit skin and floral, tomato leaf character. It's lean, firm and peppery in the finish, needing several years for the tannins to mature and integrate with the warmth of the wine.
