Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 2016 375ml
The wines of Banfi are born of a passion and love for unique terroirs, from continuous research, the intimate knowledge of different territories and the ability to marry time-tested and respected techniques with innovative solutions in both the vineyard and the winery. The splendid vineyards of Montalcino and Chianti, of Piedmont and the Tuscan coast, are the ideal cradle for wines of great character and outstanding quality.
In the spring, temperatures were in the norm, and the growing season had a regular start. April and May, which were mild with very little rain, were followed initially by a temperate summer without rain. From July onwards, there was a gradual rise in temperatures, peaking in the second half of August, resulting in an acceleration of ripening times, that, however, realigned with the period, thanks to the rainfall at the beginning of September. The harvest took place in optimal conditions, giving us a Sangiovese at the peak of its expression. An intense, elegant and balanced Brunello. Ruby red with light garnet-coloured nuances. On the nose, it is distinguished by a sweet and fruity bouquet with decisive hints of red berry jam, perfectly balanced with notes of liquorice and pipe tobacco. Soft and smooth tannins are well integrated with a strong acidity that gives this Brunello a lively and powerful structure. A wine with excellent persistence and great ageing potential. It pairs particularly well with rich and tasty dishes. Perfect as a meditation wine
