The color is a very deep and intense red with violet hints; the bouquet is of red fruits, raspberries and cherries, but also with sweet hints of cream. On the palate, it has good structure and well developed tannins, soft yet powerful at the same time. A very well balanced and harmonious wine.
James Suckling 90 points - There’s a linear purity to this red with dried chocolate, plum and peach aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now.
Intense ruby red in color with violet reflections. Fresh bouquet with typical varietal characteristics of violet, cherry, and plum. Full and elegant in taste, with a surprisingly long finish. Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino might be considered Brunello's younger sibling. Made from 100% select Sangiovese clones, Rosso di Montalcino offers rich, forward fruit f avors in a well-structured wine with supple tannins and good acidity for dining. Aged for 12 months in French oak, partially in barriques and partially in large casks. An additional 6 months of bottle aging is done before release. An ideal match with pasta, poultry, beef, and cheese.
|Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino is an outstanding companion to veal, red meats and cheeses.
