Castello Banfi Summus 2006

Product code: 10BANF16B2006

Intense and deep ruby red colour. On the nose, fruity notes of cherry and ripe plum blend with balsamic hints and more complex notes of tobacco and coffee. On the palate it is complex and persistent, with a very long and pleasant finish. A wine of great structure, defined by its sweet tannins and great potential. Enjoyable now and will continue to develop over the next 15 plus.
