Castello Banfi, Belnero 2012
Made from Sangiovese (and a smattering of international varieties) grown on the hills of Montalcino, this is quintessential Tuscany. Dark fruit aromas are laced with liquorice, exotic spice and notes of fresh tobacco. The palate has a savoury dark fruit character that combines with ripe and juicy red fruit flavours for multi-layered complexity. There is a chalky grip to the tannins followed by a red fruit finish. Delicious.
