Reviews for 2001 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino

WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2006
Loads of blackberry currant and toasted oak. Full-bodied chewy and rich. Long finish. This is big and rich. Best after 2009. 50000 cases made. -JS

Beautiful layers of cherry-berry, anise, menthol, cedar, minerality and damp clay form an intense and elegant whole. Medium structure with earth, tea-like flavors and a mélange of berries preface a smoky, spicy finish.

Deep red-ruby. Plum cherry cola sassafras and menthol on the nose. Supple spicy dense and classically dry with insidious concentration; this is stuffed with material. Very suave Brunello finishing with fine sweet tannins... Deep red-ruby. Plum cherry cola sassafras and menthol on the nose.
