Review: 2008 Banfi Brunello di Montelcino

CB Brunello di Montalcino 86x300 Review: 2008 Banfi Brunello di MontelcinoCastello Banfi’s newest vintage in its Brunello di Montelcino line is a knockout, and a great improvement over last year’s oxidized mess. For 2008, Banfi has produced a well-balanced mini-masterpiece, with a nose of black pepper and dried cherries, and a body of fresh cherries and raspberries, light tar notes, and a sultry vanilla-inflected finish. It all comes together in glorious fashion, incredibly drinkable with food and on its own — 100% Sangiovese at its best.
