Winemaker Notes

"Luscious and bold, with a round, masculine bouquet of blackberry, bitter chocolate and a whiff of coconut. The palate sports perfect harmony; it's full of cola, cherry, plum and espresso. The finish is tight and right on the money. Lovely stuff from a fine vintage; a wine made in the rich, sweet, modern style. The blend is Sangiovese, Cabernet and Syrah."
-Wine Enthusiast

This Super Tuscan red wine blend has lovely flavors of ripe cherry, plum, white pepper, spice and vanilla-oak, a rich texture and a polished, lingering finish.

Castello Banfis innovative spirit and winemaking expertise is demonstrated in all its wines, but none embodies these qualities as prominently as Summus.

A wine of towering elegance, Summus is an extraordinary blend of Brunello di Montalcino which contributes body; Cabernet Sauvignon, fruit and structure; and Syrah, elegance, character and a fruity bouquet. Each wine is individually vinified and aged one year in French oak barrique to develop its unique style, then masterfully interwoven with the others to achieve a rare dimension of taste. Two years bottle-aging brings forth a fragrant bouquet of fruit, oak and spice. Summus is characterized by a rich color and lively dance of ripe soft-fruit flavors.

Summus marries well with all red meats, stews, hearty pasta dishes and cheeses.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
