What does this wine taste like?
Wood, it must be said, which is perfectly integrated, starting from the colour of the wine, which still appears strongly ruby. The bouquet is fruity and jammy, with ferrous and ethereal echoes of rubber and caoutchouc. There is also a more developed subtext, which recalls, in addition to sweet spices like cinnamon, skins and animal notes. Consistent with the style, the tannin is already quite domesticated, and, although supported by a fine acidic shoulder, the wine flows with enveloping pleasure.

Drinking and storing
It goes very well with all those preparations that include game and venison, such as duck ravioli or wild boar terrine. Perfect to have in the cellar for the autumn period.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Suckling and Parker
This is an excellent Brunello, the nose has notes of cherry and forest fruits, hint of leather too. The palette is a little spicy with chocolate and tobacco flavours. strong but smooth tannin finish.
True to style. modern and accessible.
Likeable and modern in style. Acid and fruit in focus with oaky parts to add to structure. Keep for at least a couple of years for maximum pleasure.
Banfi keeps delivering
It’s a Banfi, great year, magnificent Brunello! Relation price/quality at it’s best if you are looking for Sangiovese perfection!
Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 2016
Deep purple. Wonderful bright nose of plumb, subtle dried red fruits, tobacco and oak.
Great Brunello, make sure it's aerated
This wine is a personal favourite and perfect for red meat dinners or tapas
