Isaac Pirolo

The 2011 SummuS from Castello Banfi is an estate-grown Super Tuscan comprised of 40% Sangiovese, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Syrah. Its name SummuS is Latin for “The Summit.” The wine glows red, but with an inky density, and an aromatic intensity to match. Black cherry, blueberry, and plum meet tobacco, licorice, and vanilla in a notably chewy style. The healthy backbone of tannin is buoyed by an ample level of acidity that contributes to both its massive structure and the balance that helps conceal it. That balance intensifies its secondary notes of chocolate, underbrush, cedar, violets, and stony earth, along with providing a vibrancy that allows it to stand out.
