Banfi Castello 2007 Summus Red Wine (IGT), $47.59-$59.99, 94 points, appears black at the core trending rosewood red with a transparent rim-ring.
Earth and tobacco dominate the aroma.
This is one of those wines that evolves and develops considerably with air, improving all-the-while.
Full bodied, rich and luscious, with good acidity, nicely layered tannin, smoky plum, blackberry, and an oaky pomegranate.
Finishes long with spice, mint, and a touch of heat (14.5% alcohol).
Varietals are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Sangiovese sourced from Montalcino.
