International Wine Cellar Author: Edward Beltrami Issue: Issue 103

($60) Very dark garnet with saturated purple hues. Penetrating aromas of underbrush, sweet tobacco and wild mushroom. Quite juicy, but also sumptuous and deep, with rich flavors of mocha, espresso and anise over a firm mineral backbone. There is no evidence of excess weight in spite of the wine generous structure. The long close features glossy tannins and a flavor of cassis. At once powerful and elegant. Among the largest producers in Montalcino, Castello Banfi is arguably the one making the best Brunellos today, with a remarkable string of successes since 1990. (Banfi Vintners, Old Brookville, NY)

A bit dried. Just a smidge past its prime. Smooth - lots of dried dark fruit. Great balance, a bit lighter than I would have liked, but it is a bit old.
