This smooth drinking Italian red wine has a decent complexity, and is simply a delicious wine for all kinds of foods and occasions. It is another winner from Castello Banfi, who is the American-owned winery in Tuscony, that, among other characteristics, has a knack for producing inexpensive, relatively large-production wines that over-deliver.
With an intense ruby red colour, and flavors of luscious berry and ripe cherry on the nose.The wine finishes with subtle hints of vanilla and fresh herbs on the palate. Soft tannins and great acidity balance out this enticing red.
