Castello Banfi 1994 Brunello di Montalcino 150cl
Brunello di Montalcino is one of the great under-appreciated wines of Italy. 100% Sangiovese which undergoes an extended period of pre-fermentation maceration to extract maximum colour, flavour and tannins which affords the wine its ability to mature for long periods. Brunello di Montalcino must be aged in oak for a minimum of 2 years, though traditionally winemakers - such as Biondi-Santi here - would age their Brunello in Slavonian oak for at least 3 years before release.
Large-format bottles are great for extended ageing periods due to the wine's slower rate of maturation.
Please note there shall be a shipping charge for 2 bottles applied to this lot.
