Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 2015
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Huge potential for this elegant and powerful Brunello. Deep red with garnet nuances, the nose reveals its complexity with aromas of plum, ripe cherry and small red fruits that perfectly combine with those of licorice and tobacco. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, with pleasant and soft tannins. Intense finish and great persistence. It goes particularly well with rich and tasty dishes. Perfect as a meditation wine.
Intense, with tension between the bright strawberry and cherry fruit flavors and the compact feel of the tannic structure. Wild herb, almond and earth accents add detail. There is a lot going on in this red, stretched tightly. Long finish. Best from 2024 through 2042.
Good full ruby-red. Roasted currants, cocoa and tobacco leaf on the nose. Suave, broad and ripe, with a savory quality to the red cherry, chocolate and leather suggestions. Closes medium-long and clean, with a lingering savory echo.
