Banfi's Rosso di Montalcino flows across the palate with layers of luscious, expressive fruit. The Banfi Rosso has been raised on partly new and partly 2 year old French oak. Wonderfully understated and seductive scent, soft fruit, cherries and a hint of vanilla. The wine has a pretty nice mouthfeel, especially due to the minerality on the mid-palate. The Banfi Rosso Montalcino is soft and accessible with notes of plum and cherry, tasteful, a slick and very pleasant glass of wine.

Brunello di Montalcino is a special wine region, but within Brunello Banfi is a special winery. About 800 hectares of vineyards have been planted on the estate of no less than 2830 hectares, making Castello Banfi by far the largest and most important producer of Brunello di Montalcino. In addition, all kinds of other wines are made based on the region's own grapes or imported grape varieties such as chardonnay or pinot grigio. The estate is dominated by a beautifully restored medieval castle, which houses a glass museum, a wine shop and two restaurants. This makes it more than worth a visit.
