Castello Banfi Chianti Classico 750ML
Castello Banfi ruby red in color. Intense bouquet with notes of cherries, plums, and violets. Rich flavors of cherry and leather. Supple tannins and good acidity. Perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of foods, including red-sauced pastas, grilled meats and roasts.
This bright, cherry-flavored red offers a soft texture and light tannins. The pleasantly astringent finish is cleansing. Drink now through 2015.
Score: 87. —Bruce Sanderson, October 31, 2012.
