Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...

The Banfi Rosso appears intense ruby red with fragrant aromas of violet, locked in with expressive red and black fruit, tobacco and vanilla on the nose. The palate is gentle and soft with succulent raspberry and blackberry fruit, savoury oak mixed in with smoke and dried plum, finishing full and balanced with varietal characteristics, harmonious and somewhat persistent. The Rosso Di Montalcino will age well 4-8 years and should be allowed to breathe 1-2 hours. Best served with game, roast meat and medium strength cheese.
