A rich and elegant Brunello, both in structure and in olfactory expression.
First vintage produced: 1978.
Brunello di Montalcino is the first Italian wine to receive DOCG status, which symbolizes its nobility, great aging potential and balanced taste.
Thanks to the Banfi winery, Sangiovese grapes have become a superb dry wine of the elite class. Brunello di Montalcino is considered one of the most respected Italian red wines.
The Castello Banfi winery is the first in the world to be recognized as absolutely correct from an ethical, social and, above all, environmental point of view. It also holds a leadership position in terms of customer satisfaction.
The Castello Banfi winery has repeatedly won titles, including “Best International Winery of the Year“, as well as the title of “Best Italian Winery of the Year”, which the company has been awarded 9 times!
Colour: bright ruby red with garnet-colored reflections
Aroma: sweet and fruity, the scents of fresh red fruit stand out, which combine perfectly with the more complex notes of licorice and pipe tobacco.
Taste: the structure is powerful and the palate is pleasantly enveloped by a consistent tannic texture well balanced by a pleasant acidity. Great potential for aging and persistence.
It goes particularly well with rich and tasty dishes. Perfect as a meditation wine.
