"Castello Banfi’s 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a well made and straightforward expression of Sangiovese that delivers the goods in an utterly clear and confident manner. It helps to know that this wine has some of the most sophisticated technology and most experienced winemakers at its back. This is one of a handful of new vintages to benefit from new investments to the crush pad and grape processing areas. What I like about this vintage is that is shows a little more of the distinct personality (the supple warmth and textural smoothness) that you get with Brunello made in the lower Sant’Angelo quadrant. The appearance is dark and rich, followed by balanced tones of dried cherry, raspberry, coffee grinds, leather and mild tobacco. The oak regime sees two years of 50% botte grande and 50% French barrique. Drink: 2016-2021."

Brunello di Montalcino Castello Banfi is made from the Sangiovese grape variety in the region of Tuscany. It is a top quality wine with intense and powerful flavours of dark berry fruits, liquorice and spices and subtle vanilla and floral notes. It is full-bodied yet still soft and velvety.
