Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 1999
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine SpectatorThis shows an incredible concentration of fruit, with loads of berries and spices on the nose. Full-bodied, with soft and silky tannins and lots of smoky character and a long finish. Best after 2005. 55,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastRich, dark and muscular, with deep, jammy aromas of plum and blackberry. Banfi toes the line between modern and traditional, and this wine fits their model perfectly. It's a ripe, sizable mouthful, yet it has some true-life edges to it. Drink now through 2009.
