About Brunello Di Montalcino 2013 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 2013 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. James Suckling scored this 95 points saying "Ripe cherry and walnut with fresh herb undertones and spice. Full body, extremely fine tannins and a silky, textured finish. Very classic and balanced. Beautifully crafted. Drink or hold." and this was awarded 98 points, a Platinum Award in the 2018 Critics Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition. They said "Castello Banfi has long been a leader in quality in this special section of Tuscany. Its influence has been felt throughout the district and it's because of wines like this. The 2013 Brunello exhibits exceptional structure, with uncommon depth and beautifully framed aromas of black cherry, tea leaf and spice. A massive Brunello with firm acidity, it will continue to exhibit its greatness over the next 20 years or more."
