Great flavor and great value. Smooth texture with a small bite finishing with a light plum aroma

Easy drinking. Cherry and plum. Pairs well with steak and mushrooms.

A rich, fruity experience. Stone fruit bouquet. Lots of tannin through the middle and a semi-dry finish. Would definitely buy again.

In 1978 John and Harry Mariani, owners of U.S. wine importer Banfi Vintners, established the vineyard estate and winery Castello Banfi in the Brunello region of Tuscany. Deep Ruby with sweet red fruit nose. On the palate, cherry and raspberry with leather notes and dry grainy tannins. Nice acidic balance medium finish, good value.
