Banfi Castello 2007 Summus Red Wine (IGT)






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.

  1. Yes and this was the first vintage with the new blend. I first had this out at a restaurant and was shocked at how well it showed. It's going to be a great wine in 5-10 years and likely drink well until it's age 15. A real nice effort and very classy.

  3. Today is Oct. 18, 2013 and this wine is priced at the NHLS outlet #33 in North Manchester at the unbelievable price of $38.49. If this kind of wine interests you, don't hesitate to get at least one of these beautiful wines from Italy.
