Dusty cherry, violets and dried herbs. Young but approachable. Modern style Brunello.

Strawberry, raspberry, and minerality! Great acid and body. Great with cioppino.

A good use of oak across the entire range of Banfi in 2010-2011. Very classic in style and true Sangiovese character. Excellent!

We had the 2011 Vintage On 1/1-2/19. Red fruit and rose petals on the bouquet. Raspberry, strawberry, vanilla and oak on the palate. Medium bodied wine, smooth finish, Old World feel.

Damn my patience, or rather, lack thereof. Dense wine that of course opened up towards the end of the bottle. Cherry and currant with some blue fruit notes. Round and just starting to integrate.

100% Sangiovese Bricked orangey garnet. Clear, semi transparent. Compact rim. Pleasing bouquet of sour cherry intermingling with tar, soil tone, and some other Earth-derived characters. Teeth stainingly thick tannin, med high acidity, dry, with medium full bodied. The palate also shows a lot of classic Brunello treads - sour cherry, strawberry, slightly leafy, sage, star anise, and hint of cinnamon powder. This will take another 10 years to justify its potential. Even with 2.5 hr in the decanter, it still held tightly. Superbly classic. 90+
