The 2010 Rosso di Montalcino flows across the palate with layers of lush, expressive fruit. The wine’s minerality comes through on the mid-palate and finish. I very much like the combination of rich fruit and freshness in this lush, textured Rosso. Banfi aged the Rosso in a combination of French oak barrels and casks. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2016.

This is transparent ruby in color and scented with cocoa and dates. The rich tannins balance a touch of sweetness with light umami notes. It’s balanced in the direction of braised beef.
