BelnerO is, year after year, a reliably successful expression of Castello Banfi’s estate-grown Sangiovese from Montalcino’s southern hills. This 2011 is no different, offering up plenty of pleasure right now and promising many more years of evolution to come. Highly recommended.
Banfi BelnerO Toscana 2011 IGT
Aromas of cherries and leather mingle with a subtle spiciness, hints of dried oregano and a whiff of dried violets. On the palate, this is beautifully balanced, with oak spice, cherry, boysenberry, plum, mineral, star anise, and dusty tannins that sail through the nicely structured finish. Drink now - 2022.
