Winery Story

Castello Banfi crowns the summit of the first foothills rising from the plains of the Tuscan Maremma. Founded in the 9th century as Poggio a... (more...)lle Mura, the estate's gentle western slopes lie between the medieval hilltop town of Montalcino and the Mediterranean Sea. The wines express a profound respect of their heritage but have also been perfected by the innovative wine making techniques at Castello Banfi.

Tasting Note

Young mauve red color. Complex aromas with varietal notes of plum, blackberry and hints of licorice, vanilla and light leather. Fruit forwar... (more...)d, with black-fruit notes. Good structure, well balanced, with a lingering finish.
