    Description

    Banfi was founded in 1978 thanks to the will of the Italian-American brothers, John and Harry Mariani. From the beginning, the goal of the two brothers was to create a state-of-the-art winery and implement the most cutting-edge technology in their prestigious vineyard sites. The Castello Banfi is one of the most impressive sites in the Montalcino region.

    Only released 5 years after harvest, Banfi Bruinello is the culmination of 30 years of research and experience in Montalcino production. The bouquet is fielled with cherry, violet and vanilla aromas. The palate is full-bodied, soft and velvety with a core of concentrated dark fruits. Try pairing with roast beef or wild game.

    The Castello Banfi 2017 Brunello di Montalcino relies on fruit freshness and varietal purity to show a classic side of this hot and dry vintage. The wine remains elegant and bright throughout with plenty of primary fruit, cherry and dried raspberry. It shows a clean, linear style with rosemary, blue flower and some green olive or wild fennel. This is a handy, near-term drinking wine with a hefty 15% alcohol that can be absorbed with a hearty pasta or lasagna.
