2017 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino, Italy, Tuscany, Wine Review
Another top BdM from the consistently top producer. Ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose is nice with cherries, spice, and a bit of tobacco. Medium to full bodied. Light tannins. On the palate, this has a tight complexity that unwinds in the glass. Lots of cherry fruit with some underlying forest floor and slight tea leaves. Good finish. This is a classic pizza wine and in fact, went great with some really creative wood fired pizza. Drink over the next ten years.
