Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 2013
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Cherry and plum flavors highlight this well-structured red, along with notes of leather, earth and wild herbs. Firms up as the dense tannins come into play on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2037. 48,350 cases made, 8,500 cases imported.
Forest floor, wild berry, coffee and toasted oak aromas come together on this. The medium-bodied palate is on the lean side, offering sour cherry, tobacco leaf, espresso and a saline note alongside lithe tannins. Drink 2020-2028.
Bright dark red. Savory herbs, tar and red cherry on the simple but pleasant nose. Flavors similar to the aromas and a suave, bright, easy-to-drink quality make for a Brunello that can be enjoyed now.
