Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino DOCG , 1 x 75cl
Brunello di Montalcino was Italy’s first wine to be accorded DOCG status, a testament to its aristocracy, balance and fabulous proclivity for aging.
Stony, calcareous and well-structured.
Altitude: 720 feet above sea level.
Our Banfi Brunello di Montalcino is a culmination
of over three decades of Castello Banfi ’s pioneering
research on the clones of Sangiovese; with the goal
of producing a more outstanding quality Brunello. A
meticulous grape selection is followed by vinifi cation
with skin contact for 10-12 days. Released in the 5th
year after harvest, the wine is aged for a minimum
of 4 years, including 2 years in oak barrels of various
sizes, mainly French oak barriques, and partly in
Slavonian oak casks.
Ethereal, violet, vanilla with hints of licorice.
Full, soft, velvety, with traces of spice.
Perfect with red meats, wild game
and aged cheeses
