This Banfi Belnero red blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is a beautiful expression of Montalcino terroir with it’s sophisticated flavors and develops a more robust bouquet as it opens in the glass. Aromas of vanilla, toffee and deep fruit first greet you then you get a hint of cocoa and plum. On the first sip it was a little shy, but once it opened up the flavors became more pronounced with plum, cherry, tobacco and leather.
Ageing Potential: 6 Years
This wine celebrates the experience, the passion and the 30 years commitment to quality that Banfi has incessantly been dedicated to in its constant pursuit of excellence, in the vineyard as well as in the winery.
