Banfi Rosso di Montalcino 2011

Banfi Rosso di Montalcino 750ML 2011      
Sku: 13073

Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino is a wine of noble origins and impressive original thinking. Made from 100% select Sangiovese clones, Rosso di Montalcino is considered Brunello`s younger sibling. Rosso di Montalcino is aged less than its elder counterpart - 12 months in wood (half in French oak barrique and half in Slavonian oak casks) followed by at least 6 months in the bottle before release. It is deep ruby-red in color with a dry, round, velvety taste and generous body - characteristics similar to those desired in a great Brunello. Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino is an outstanding companion to veal, red meats and cheeses.

Tasting notes
The color is a very deep and intense red with violet hints; the bouquet is of red fruits, raspberries and cherries, but also with sweet hints of cream. On the palate, it has good structure and well developed tannins, soft yet powerful at the same time. A very well balanced and harmonious wine.

 Wine Spectator 90 points
The 2011 Rosso di Montalcino is, as always, an excellent introduction to the wines of Castello Banfi. An intensely floral wine, the 2011 emerges from the glass with attractive scents of red cherries and raspberries. This soft, supple Rosso is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016.

Food pairing
Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino is an outstanding companion to veal, red meats and cheeses.
