Castello Banfi

Intense ruby red color with violet reflections. Bouquet is intense, fresh, fruity with typical varietal characteristics of violet, cherry, plum. Taste is gentle, wide, soft, with surprising length. Ideal match with game and medium-aged cheese. The remarkable structure allows for a good aging.

Wine Advocate

The 2009 Rosso di Montalcino is a dazzling wine. Rich dark plums, cherries, spices and tobacco emerge from this extroverted, intense Rosso. The raciness of the fruit leaves a lasting impression. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.

Score: 90. —Antonio Galloni, May 2011.

Wine Spectator

A dense, chunky style, laced with black cherry and blackberry flavors. The tannins are assertive and mouthcoating, but everything works together. Shows fine length. Best from 2012 through 2015. 50,000 cases made.

Score: 89. —Bruce Sanderson, September 30, 2011.
