Pale straw color, with intense and fresh aromas of flowers but also of lime, pear, peaches and citrus. On the palate the wine is lively and persistent thanks to a pleasing but not aggressive acidity. Balanced and fresh; flavors on the palate support those of the bouquet.
"A round, lightly floral wine with a fullness and spice that brings lots of appeal. The fruit flavors are completely ripe, edging into the tropical, and the ripeness makes you want to take another sip."Publication: Wine & Spirits
In 1978 John and Harry Mariani, owners of the U.S. wine importer Banfi Vintners, established the award winning vineyard estate and winery Castello Banfi in the Brunello region of Tuscany. A constellation of single vineyards located on ideal sites cover about one third of the 7,100 acre (2,830 hectares) estate. The remaining land consists of bucolic meadows, olive and plum groves, and woodland. Central to the property is a medieval castle that functions as a hospitality center, hosting visitors at a full service restaurant, enoteca and museum dedicated to the history of glass and its relation to wine.
