Dense aromatics with black plum game leather menthol oak and anise notes open this full-throttle red. The plate shows impressive depth of flavor with tart plum and bitter chocolate notes as well as fine fruit to acid... Dense aromatics with black plum game leather menthol oak and anise notes open this full-throttle red. The plate shows impressive depth of flavor with tart plum and bitter chocolate notes as well as fine fruit to acid balance. The long dry even finish wraps it up beautifully with black fruit and bitter chocolate notes. - W.E. (2/1/2001)

Chunky red with aromas of berry mint cherry and wet earth. Full-bodied and velvety with lots of fruit and a long minty finish. A delicious example of the quality to be found in the '95 Brunello vintage. Drink now through... Chunky red with aromas of berry mint cherry and wet earth.

Castello Banfi

Castello Banfi, a family-owned wine estate in the Tuscany region, was founded in 1978 by Italian-American brothers, John and Harry Mariani.

The Banfi territory encompasses 7,100 acres of land in Montalcino, of which about one third is planted with Sangiovese, Moscadello and other notable varieties on extremely rich and uniform soils of clay and calcium.

Banfi Piedmont was founded with the acquisition of the historic Bruzzone winery. The holdings there extend between the towns of Novi Ligure and Acqui over an area of 124 acres of which 114 are under vine.

The Banfi vineyards in Bolgheri, located south of Castagneto Carducci, give life to the prized Aska, bringing together intensity, roundness and structure.

Banfi also manages 100 acres of specialized vineyard in Chianti which bequeaths wines that bring together structure, elegance, and typical Tuscan personality.
