Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Description: The 2011 Castello Banfi Brunello proves once again that excellent wine need not be crafted in minuscule amounts. Decanted 60 minutes, the deft hand of winemaker Rudy Buratti reveals the gorgeous spice, crushed cherry and soft vanilla aromas of this deep ruby colored wine. Flavors follow the nose and add leaf tobacco and mushroom. Balanced and long, this stays fresh even as the tannins clamp down a bit on the finish. Can use a year or two in the cellar to soften. If trying it now, decant an hour or more. 92+ points.
