Wine AdvocateCastello Banfi has maintained an excellent reputation for consistency over the years. The performance of its base Brunello offers solid evidence of this. If you look back at the scores over the years, you will see less fluctuation between the good vintages and the bad ones. That consistency is achieved thanks to significant investments in manpower and technology. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino beautifully illustrates my point. The wine is openly redolent of Sangiovese-driven aromas of wild berry, underbrush and spice. The finish is long, silky and the tannins are polished. This wine should hold well for the next ten years.

Wine SpectatorPlum and earth flavors mark this ripe, meaty red. Shows good freshness, winding down with leafy and tobacco notes. Delivers fine balance and a long finish. Best from 2017 through 2025. 48,300 cases made.
