For its soft, elegant character, Pinot Noir has been hailed by consumers and wine experts as one of the most refined noble grape varieties. At Castello Banfi`s renowned estate in Montalcino, the lean soil and unique microclimate afford optimum growing conditions for the temperamental Pinot Noir grape. Belnero is an intense, ruby-red wine with a fruity, berry-like bouquet and a rich, harmonious, complex and well-balanced taste. An opulent red, the beautifully perfumed Belnero is aged for approximately ten months in French barrique followed by one year rest in the bottle before release. Belnero is only produced in the finest vintage years at Castello Banfi. A delightful accompaniment to well-seasoned pasta dishes, Belnero Pinot Noir is also an outstanding companion to veal, red meats and cheeses.

Review
"An agreeable Italian Pinot Noir that is smooth andpolished in texture and nicely fruity in flavor, with light herb and olive accents. Has modest tannins and is ready to drink now." Publication: Wine Spectator

Rating
Attractive deep garnet hue. Fresh plum and blueberry aromas with notes of coffee bean and leather. Tart black cherry fruit with dusty, flinty tannins and a defined minerality. Lengthy finish shows great staying power. 92 Points. Wine News - March, 2009
