2013 Castello Banfi

Brunello di Montalcino

$44.99 Now!


Castello Banfi's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino denotes riper and softer fruit than most of its peers in this vintage. This historic estate is located in the southern quadrant of the appellation, where temperatures are a few degrees warmer on average. You don't always taste that difference in ripeness, but for some reason, it comes forward with increased intensity in 2013. Therefore, I am officially recommending this wine to all those Brunello lovers who appreciate a little more volume and softness on those proverbial love handles. If you like 'em lean and mean, go elsewhere. But if you happen to be seated in front of a piping hot beefsteak that was just pulled off the grill, then you should definitely reach for this bottle.
