[ Home > Wines > Wines From Italy > Banfi Brunello Di Montalcino ]|
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.
Brunello di Montalcino was Italyís first wine to be accorded
DOCG status, a testament to its aristocracy, balance and fabulous
proclivity for aging.
Banfi Brunello di Montalcino is a culmination of over two
decades of Castello Banfiís pioneering research on the clones of
Sangiovese; with the goal of producing a more outstanding quality
Brunello. A meticulous grape selection is followed by vinification with
skin contact for 10-12 days. Released in the 5th year after harvest,
the wine is aged for a minimum of 4 years, including 2 years in oak
barrels of various sizes, mainly French oak barriques, and partly in
Slavonian oak casks.
Perfect with red meats, wild game and aged cheeses.
