Banfi Rosso di Montalcino 2001
Rosso di Montalcino is aged less than its elder counterpart - 12 months in wood (half in French oak barrique and half in Slavonian oak casks) followed by one year in the bottle. It is deep ruby-red in color with a dry, round, velvety taste and generous body - characteristics similar to those desired in a great Brunello.
Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino is an outstanding companion to veal, red meats and cheeses.
