When to drink: 2022 to 2044
The newest addition to Banfi’s Brunello lineup, this single-vineyard offering boasts firm structure, finesse and radiance. Aged in large French casks, it opens with enticing aromas of blue flower, menthol, forest floor and star anise. On the full-bodied palate, tightly wound, fine-grained tannins accompany juicy Marasca cherry, blood orange, licorice and a hint of espresso while fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Still young and primary, it shows great aging potential and needs time to fully develop.
