Castello Banfi - Summus Toscana Igt Bottle 2015
|Grapes||Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah / Shiraz, Sangiovese|
|Food pairing||Meat, Beef, Lamb, Game, Poultry|
From the vineyards around the castle in Montalcino, this wine was the first 'Super-Tuscan' from Montalcino. This wine combines Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. All are vinified separately before being blended together for ageing in wood.
Heady, dark fruit aromas with chocolate and kirsch. Full, elegant and richly smooth palate corralled by Sangiovese grip, spiked by leafy Cabernet and soothed by supple Syrah. Long, fresh finish carried by firm, fine tannins.
