The Castello Banfi 2016 SummuS is a child of a very happy vintage in Tuscany. This wine shows depth and persistence with loads of dark berry and blackcurrant along the way. The wine shows a moment of thinness at the mid-palate, but it then fleshes out, ultimately offering more volume and texture on the close. You can't really make out the grapes in the blend, but together they offer a classic portrait of your quintessential Tuscan red wine. Some 40,000 bottles were made.- ML

On the elegant, structured palate, tight, fine-grained tannins support flavors of black cherry, red currant, espresso and tobacco. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. KERIN O’KEEFE

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.
