Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red with violet reflections. Bouquet is intense, fresh, and fruity with typical varietal characteristics of violet, cherry, and plum. Gentle, full, soft, and surprising length.

Ideal with wild game and aged cheeses.

COMMENTARY: The 2019 Castelo Banfi Rosso di Montalcino comes up big and lasting on the palate as it finishes with a deft and delicate aftertaste. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers excellent aromas and flavors of black fruits and shading of oak. Enjoy it with a grilled, well-marbled ribeye. (Tasted: July 27, 2022, San Francisco, CA)

Montalcino Wine

Tuscany, Italy

View all products

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
