Estate vineyards in the southern hills of Montalcino. Altitude: 100 meters above sea level. Position: Hillside.
The selected grapes are vinified in Horizon hybrid stainless steel & wood tanks, with an average maceration of 7-10 days. After an aging period of 10-12 months, partially in barriques and partially in large oak barrels, followed by an additional 6 months in bottle before release.
A super-classic of Montalcino and Banfi. A wine able to match the elegance and solidity of its elder counterpart with a freshness and directness that make it one of the most versitile wines within Banfi’s offer. Very enjoyable when released, it is also suitable for a long aging.

Selezionato tra “I Migliori Vini d’Italia”
Intense, ruby red color. On the nose classic aromas of blackberry and raspberry, which are well integrated with notes of vanilla and tobacco. The structure is ample, very concentrated and harmonious, supported by a good acidity. The finish is persistent.
