Wine Review: This dark ruby wine from Banfi is certainly one of the better Rosso di Montalcino’s that I have tried recently. This wine opens with expressive cherry aromas and a touch of must. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is smooth, soft, nicely balanced and elegant in style. Most importantly it is very lightly oaked allowing the really nice cherry flavors for be enjoyed. The finish is dry and has soft tannins linger and drift away nicely. This very satisfying wine would pair quite nicely with beef stroganoff or prime rib. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Intense ruby red with violet reflections. Bouquet: Intense, fresh, fruity with typical varietal characteristics of violet, cherry and plum. Taste: Gentle, full and soft, with surprising length.
