Brand Castello Banfi
Alcohol/vol 15%
A Supertuscan that perfectly combines the best tradition of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with the territory of Montalcino. Intense wine with very fruity scents accompanied by more complex notes of jam, spices, tobacco and coffee. In the mouth it shows all its grandeur, with sweet tannins and very persistent hints. Ideal with red meats and cheese.

Shy in aroma, this red evokes violet, black currant, blackberry, iron and tobacco flavors. Powerful and brooding, this needs time to reveal the pure fruit and supple texture. Terrific length and vibrant structure. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2022 through 2033. 1,600 cases made, 200 cases imported.

The 2015 ExcelsuS is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon with grapes grown from within the Montalcino territory. This wine delivers round intensity and solid structure with plenty of dark fruit, blackberry, plum spice, leather and grilled herb at the core. This is a dark and full-bodied expression with long persistence and integrated tannins. I could imagine a pairing with oven-roasted lasagna with crunchy cheese on the top.
