Where It's From

Region / Tuscany

View more wines from Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Country / Italy

View more wines from Italy

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.

Really fresh and vivid with sliced lemon and apple heading into cherry and floral undertones. It’s medium- to full-bodied with fine tannins and a vivid and bright finish. This is so drinkable and pretty for the hot and dry 2017 vintage, which produced many heavy Brunellos. Drink now or hold.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2022
This red is defined by the strawberry, cherry and floral aromas and flavors, graced by notes of tar, tobacco, eucalyptus and wild herbs. Firm and unforgiving on the finish for now, yet stays persistent and lively through the long aftertaste. Best from 2025 through 2042. 37,500 cases made, 4,600 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 17th Feb 2022
The Castello Banfi 2017 Brunello di Montalcino relies on fruit freshness and varietal purity to show a classic side of this hot and dry vintage. The wine remains elegant and bright throughout with plenty of primary fruit, cherry and dried raspberry. It shows a clean, linear style with rosemary, blue flower and some green olive or wild fennel. This is a handy, near-term drinking wine with a hefty 15% alcohol that can be absorbed with a hearty pasta or lasagna. Production is impressive with 450,000 bottles. (Monica Larner)
WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2022
Subtle aromas of scorched earth, forest floor and mature berries mingle with a eucalyptus note. The full-bodied palate features cherry marinated in spirits, prune, roasted coffee bean and licorice framed in close-grained tannins. You’ll also notice the warmth of alcohol on the close. While it reflects the heat of the vintage, it also shows polish and restraint. (Kerin O’Keefe)

JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, July 7, 2020
Aromas of currants and blackberries and hints of mushrooms follow through to a medium body with plenty of fruit, fine tannins and a fresh, fruity finish. Drink after 2022, but already a beauty.
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2020
This red starts out accessible, packed with ripe plum, cherry, iron and earth flavors accented by oak spice, before dense tannins firm up the finish. Though finely balanced, elegant and fresh, this will take a few years to integrate all its elements. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2021 through 2032. 2,000 cases imported.
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2020
This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc opens with aromas of dark-skinned berry, leather and a whiff of mocha. The juicy, balanced palate delivers blackberry jam, star anise and tobacco alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2024.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 17th Dec 2020
In developing their new Bolgheri project, the team at Banfi decided to focus on Cabernet Sauvignon with Cabernet Franc, blended here 90% to 10%, respectively. Their 2017 Bolgheri Rosso Aska shows richness and generous fruit for sure, but the wine is more streamlined and subdued next to many of the much riper wines made by its peers in this hot and dry vintage. This wine has captured the concentration and spicy nature of the vintage, but it does so without feeling heavy or jammy. There’s good balance in the mouth as well, with well managed tannin. Production is an ample 82,000 bottles.

Cool and perfumed 2016 Brunello with black cherries, flowers and crushed stones. Medium to full body with firm, chewy tannins, yet polished and very silky. Mineral and seaweed undertones. Just a hint of bitterness. Drink after 2023.
RP95+95+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2020
This wine represents a selection of fruit from vineyards near the property’s postcard-perfect Castello, and it’s often the most representative of the new releases presented each year by Castello Banfi. From a classic and balanced vintage, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura shows beautiful depth and balance with dark fruit, cassis, dried cherry, licorice, balsam herb and earthy tones. The wine is symmetrical, tight and elegant with long, silky tannins. This is the full Banfi package.
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2021
There’s a lot going on in this bone-dry yet complex red, whose cherry, strawberry and plum fruit meshes with iron, tobacco, wild thyme and Mediterranean pine flavors, while the dusty tannins exert their presence on the lingering finish. Think hearty stews or wild boar ragù. Best from 2025 through 2043. 160 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)
JD9494 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 3/4/2021
The 2016 Poggio alle Mura Brunello di Montalcino was aged for two years in 40% large French oak casks and 60% in French oak barriques. It offers concentrated aromatics of confected black cherry, vanilla, tobacco, and tar, and the palate is full of grounding structure and flavors of unsweetened black licorice, cherry pit, and fresh Mediterranean herbs. This will warrant time in the cellar to mature, over the next 15 to 20 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)
VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2020
The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura from Banfi impresses with a dark, savory and exotic display, with woodland berries, sage, ashen soil tones and hints of tobacco. There are depths of silky textures here, lifted by cooling minerality and hints of mint. Its red and black fruits are polished, as this shows wonderful symmetry and poise, with flavors of licorice, dark chocolate and purple-tinged florals toward the close. You can feel its youthful structure, but there are plenty of primary components here to balance them out. Very nice.

Pouring a deep ruby color, the 2021 Chianti Classico is aromatic of fresh cedar, ripe red cherry, dusty earth, and dried red flowers. Medium to full-bodied, it is mouthwatering with savory herbs up front, followed by tangy acidity, dusty tannins, and a lingering bit of smoky incense on the finish with oak spices. It’s a solid offering to enjoy over the near term and would be ideal for pizza nights. Drink 2024–2026. (Audrey Frick)

The San Felice 2019 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio (made with 80% Sangiovese and 20% complementary indigenous grapes) stands out due to its velvety richness and expressive flavor profile. The wine delivers measured intensity with bright purple and black fruits, a good sense of energy and drive, and some lingering spiciness on the close. It is rich but not heavy. Production is 30,000 bottles. (Monica Larner)
JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, August 7, 2023
This is spiced and racy with dark cherries, currants, savory herbs, walnuts and sandalwood. Medium- to full-bodied with ripe, powdery tannins, juicy acidity and a mineral backbone on the palate. Bright and fruit-forward in the finish. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2023
A sleek red, with solid grip wrapped around dark flavors of black cherry, blueberry and earth. Vibrant, with a slight burr to the chalky tannins on the iron-infused finish. Sangiovese, Pugnitello, Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo, Mazzese and Abrusco. Best from 2025 through 2042. 2,500 cases made, 460 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)
WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2023
The nose opens with savory notes of tar, topsoil and balsamic vinegar before a bracingly fresh burst of wild fennel and mint. Fresh, crisp red fruit on the palate has a chocolaty undertone with more tar and crushed rock for a mineral edge, emphasized by tightly coiled tannins. (Danielle Callegari)

RP98+98+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Dec 2023
Although this wine was very shy initially, the Poggio di Sotto 2019 Brunello di Montalcino eventually hits all the high notes of Sangiovese. This is a wine of enormous inner tension, showing a punchy, lifted personality with aromas of cherry skin and blackberry. You get brandied cherry, strawberry glazed pie with the gelatin, underbrush, blue flower, forget-me-nots, balsam herb, mint and licorice. A few hours later, the wine had developed into a classic beauty with slender lines, firm structure and a sparkle of brilliant acidity. The oak is integrated to the point of invisibility, the tannins are elegant and fine and the acidity is that proverbial cherry on top. Ultimately, I liked this village bottling more than the 2018 Riserva. (Monica Larner)
JD98+98+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/28/2024
I was able to taste the 2019 Brunello Di Montalcino three times for this report, and it’s one of the great wines of the vintage. It takes on a bit more muscular style for the Poggio di Sotto estate, but it retains the DNA of the estate at large with its outstanding clarity. It’s medium ruby-colored and reveals notes of pure cherry, anise, wildflowers, wet stone, and tea leaf. Structured and long on the palate, it has ripe, chiseled tannins, a balanced spine of acidity, and notes of salted orange through the finish, with a long-lasting perfume. Its transparency, balanced with its complexity, makes this one of the most intriguing wines, and if stored properly, it will only improve with time in the cellar. Drink 2027–2047. (Audrey Frick)
JS9696 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, September 25, 2023
Sweet cherry and flower aromas with some orange peel and lilac character. Medium-bodied with pretty depth and focus. Ripe, fine tannins and an attractive finish. Subtle richness and class. From organically grown grapes. Give this three or four years to come around. Best after 2025. (James Suckling)

The 2019 Chianti Colli Fiorentini is a bold, juicy wine. Succulent red cherry, plum, spice and tobacco race across the palate as this fleshy, inky Chianti shows off its considerable charms. The 2019 is not super complex, but it is immediate, bold and undeniably delicious. (Antonio Galloni)
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 7/1/2021
Aromas of ripe dark-skinned berries, new leather and underbrush lift out of the glass. On the easygoing, enjoyable palate, lithe tannins and fresh acidity accompany dried cherry, white pepper and a hint of star anise. (Kerin O’Keefe)

The fruit is on the darker side for the vintage, evoking black cherry, blackberry and dark plum flavors, while earth and wild herb accents add detail. Tightly knit tannins quickly intervene, leaving a compact, powdery feel on the finish. Best from 2027 through 2043. 16,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)
JD92+92+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/28/2024
The 2019 Brunello Di Montalcino has a ruby/orange color and lifts with a citrus-tinged profile of dried orange peel, preserved cranberries, dusty earth, and sweet Mediterranean herbs. This continues to the palate with elegant structure in its fine tannins, an even spine of acidity, and notes of citrus peel and dried apricot on the finish. This is a very pretty style that will be best enjoyed over the next 10 years. 200,000 bottles produced. (Audrey Frick)
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Dec 2023
The Camigliano 2019 Brunello di Montalcino offers a combination of dark fruit, ripe blackberry and toasted cardamom or cumin seed from 24 months of aging in large oak casks. This organic wine shows lots of rich concentration and oak-driven intensity that fits within the context of classic Brunello. Ultimately, the wine mirrors a warm growing area with a mix of clay, sand and rocky soils. It delivers easy texture on the mid-palate with chalky tannins. This is a big release of 190,000 bottles. (Monica Larner)
JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, September 25, 2023
Lots of dried fruit, such as of figs, dried plums and savory herbs, followed by lingering dried-meat and sweet-and-sour undertones. Medium-bodied with polished tannins. A slightly nutty aftertaste. From organically grown grapes. Drink now or hold. (James Suckling)
