Castello Banfi Sant' Antimo Excelsus 2004 750ml

Castello Banfi Sant' Antimo Excelsus

93 Points Wine Enthusiast: This vintage of this Cab-Sangiovese-Merlot blend is uniquely attractive and refined, offering a modern, direct approach and delivers pristine aromas of black cherry, blackberry, exotic spice, leather and pipe tobacco. In the mouth, it boasts thick tannins and excellent length.

Estate-bottled only in exceptional vintage years, this Super Tuscan integrates the best tradition of the noble French grapes of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with the extraordinary Montalcino terroir. An austere wine, with a rare concentration and structure.

Castello Banfi is a family-owned vineyard estate and winery in the Brunello region of Tuscany. Together with its sister estates in Piedmont, Vigne Regali and Principessa Gavia, it has become recognized the world over for its dedication to excellence and sparking a renaissance in the art of Italian winemaking.

Excelsus complements red meats, game, rich-tasting dishes and full-flavored cheeses.
