Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 2009
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
The wine opens with aromas of oak, espresso, and black plum. The palate delivers stewed plums, blackberries and cherry extract layered with toasted oak, roasted coffee bean and sweet vanilla. This is already accessible so enjoy over the next few years.
The steeped black cherry and plum flavors are shaded by sweet spices in this powerful red. Astringent on the finish and a touch hot in the balance, with fine length. 46,650 cases made.
