Blackberry, leather and herbs. Perfect pairing for steak on a rainy summer night. #brunellodimontalcino #banfi #wine #tuscany #italy

17.5. Deep ruby with amber rim. Complex and deep nose. Lots of fruit. M+ length, but rather dry on finish.

Earthy, leather and dry with hints of fruit. Actually prunes is the flavor that comes to mind. The dry taste overwhelms but still a well made wine. Matter of preference but makes the 04 Argiano I just tasted seem like a fruit bomb- which it isn’t.
