Has fabulous aromas of blackberry black cherry and raspberry. Full-bodied with wonderfully integrated tannins fresh mushrooms and milk chocolate. Chewy in the end. We will see if this is better than the 2001 with age... Has fabulous aromas of blackberry black cherry and raspberry.

Banfi's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty delicate offering laced with raspberries flowers and sweet baking spices. Fine silky tannins add to an overall impression of elegance as this mid-weight Brunello opens up in the glass. The wine is already quite open and accessible and should continue to drink well for the better part of the next decade. This is one of the more refined wines I have tasted from Banfi in recent years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. -Antonio Galloni

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.
