Brunello di Montalcino 2011 Castello Banfi
Brunello di Montalcino was Italy's first wine to be accorded D.O.C.G. status, a testament to its status, quality and consistency. Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italy’s most celebrated and in the outstanding 2011 vintage they've produced an exceptional wine. Yields were kept low and after meticulous grape selection vinification is in temperature-controlled hybrid stainless steel & wood tanks, with skin contact for 10-12 days. The wine ages for 2 years in various sizes oak barrels, 350-liter barriques, and 60- and 120 hl barrels; the wine is subsequently aged in bottle for an additional 8-12 months before release. This was a Platinum Award winner with 95 points in the 2016 Sommelier Challenge as well as a 95 point award winner in the 2016 San Diego International Wine & Spirits Competition, where Castello Banfi was also crowned European Winery of the Year! Wine Review Online also rated it 95 and said "Take some time and unwind. No, not you -- this wine. You'll definitely want to tuck this one away in the deep recesses of your cellar. It's just beginning to show itself from under its massive structure. High toned cherry fruit, underbrush and brown spice will gain significant elegance with time. If you must go early with this, decant it overnight."
