Winemaker Notes

Beautiful ruby red in color. The bouquet is complex, with aromas of plum and ripe cherry that, with a short aeration, yield to hints of coffee, licorice and tobacco. The structure is full, with tannins well present and supported by lively acidity that gives freshness and length. This is a wine that will also benefit from lengthy cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling

A wine with chocolate, berry and hazelnut character with hints of earth. Full body, yet reserved and balanced with a pretty aftertaste. This is really delicious. Drink now.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

This selection offers balance and integrated aromas of spice, dark fruit, leather, tobacco, cola and rum cake. The wine shows power and heft both in terms of alcohol and consistency. Smoothly polished, fine tannins appear on the close.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

A vibrant, cherry- and black currant-flavored red, with a bracing structure that drives to the lingering conclusion. The tannins are pronounced yet well-integrated, with hints of spice and tobacco on the finish.

Castello Banfi, , Italy
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.
