Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Wine is crafted on Vineyards Estate vineyards, found on the southern hills of Montalcino. The grapes are grown in stony, calcareous and well-structured soil at an altitude of 720 feet above sea level. A meticulous grape selection is followed by vinification with skin contact for 10-12 days. Released in the 5th year after harvest, the wine is aged for a minimum of 4 years, including 2 years in oak barrels of various sizes, mainly French oak barriques and partly in Slavonian oak casks. The body color is anntense ruby red with garnet reflections. Ethereal, violet, vanilla with hints of licorice hang on the nose, while full, soft, velvety, flavors with traces of spice play on the tongue. Goes perfectly with red meats, wild game, and aged cheeses.
