Quite perfumed and elegant here on the nose, with forward, very ripe blueberry compote and slightly figgy flavours....

I attended a Banfi tasting this year, specifically to help myself decide why I was finding their wines so difficult....

Nice maturing Brunello. Initial tight nose opened up with decanting to reveal blackberry and herbs. Dry and savory with black cherry, black currants, anise and plenty of tannin. A well balanced but rustic brunello with decent fruit concentration. Long, dry finish.

Very good with food but hardly a classic example and not really worth $60. Some life left in this but I'd say if you have any drink it up with some rich food. This was very nice with a mushroom, squash & blue cheese risotto.
