Evaluation: 2017 Banfi Brunello di Montalcino

Earlier this month, Robert took an in-depth have a look at three current choices from Banfi, an Italian producer providing quite a lot of wines at a variety of value factors and kinds. For an encore, we’re pouring a glass of the 2017 Banfi Brunello.

Shiny and full of life, the nostril gives an ideal stability of earthy and fruit parts as notes of cherry, vanilla, and pink licorice vine mingle properly with eucalyptus and deep forest ground. Some persistence within the glass is required, however it’s nicely value a modest wait to expertise the bottle at full potential. Very like the 2016, there’s a robust tobacco leaf and cedar entry on the palate, giving approach to wild herbs and muted floral notes as issues carry ahead. The herbaceous affect hangs round on the end, with a vivid and shocking relapse into cherry territory. Pairs nicely with a thoughtfully constructed plate of pink meats and a slab of Parmigiano-Reggiano and aged Pecorino (or each!) and can probably enhance with a yr within the cellar.
