Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 2016

Castello Banfi shows impressive precision of vivid fruit, fine tannins and freshness in acidity despite its ripeness and richness which makes it some of the most exciting in years. It is more balanced and precise, expressing what great Brunellos should be today and setting a new benchmark for wines from the region

WINEMAKER NOTES

Castello Banfi

by Cristina Mariani-May

The 2016 vintage shows lots of plum and dark-berry character with cedar, sandalwood and ethereal echoes of rubber. There is also a more developed subtext, which recalls sweet spices, skins and animal notes. Consistent with the style, velvety tannins constitute the main backbone, supported by a fine acidic shoulder that provides a vivid finish
