BANFI ROSSO DI MONTALCINO
Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino might be considered Brunello’s younger sibling. Made from 100% select Sangiovese clones, Rosso di Montalcino offers rich, forward fruit fl avors in a well-structured wine with supple tannins and good acidity for dining.
Estate vineyards in the southern part of Montalcino. The soil is calcareous and well-structured.
Maceration for 7-10 days. Aged 10-12 months, partially in French oak barriques and partially in large Slavonian oak barrels. Additional 6 months of bottle aging.
Intense ruby red with violet reflections. On the nose it is Intense, fresh, and fruity with typical varietal characteristics of violet, cherry, and plum. The palate is gentle, full and soft, with surprising length. Ideal with wild game and aged cheeses.
