Toscana Rosso IGT 'Excelsus' 2015 (750 ml.) - Castello Banfi

Toscana Rosso 'Excelsus' by Castello Banfi is produced only in great vintages. It is a Supertuscan that perfectly integrates the best tradition of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with the territory of Montalcino and with the tradition of Castello Banfi. Austere wine, of rare concentration and structure, whose maturation requires a passage in barrique of at least 20 months. The result is an intense wine that has very fruity scents accompanied by more complex notes of jam, spices, tobacco and coffee. In the mouth, it shows all its grandeur, with sweet tannins and very persistent hints.

THE COMPANY

Banfi was founded in 1978 thanks to the will of the Italian-American brothers, John and Harry Mariani. From the beginning, the goal of the two brothers was to create a state-of-the-art winery combined with the most advanced science in the vineyards for the production of premium wines. Together with the Mariani family, Ezio Rivella, one of Italy's foremost enologists, who understood that due to the richness of the soils and the privileged microclimatic position, the property would have great capacity of development. In those years, the brothers, John and Harry, also purchased Bruzzone, a historic winery in Piedmont. Founded in 1860 and specialized in the production of sparkling wines, today is known as Banfi Piemonte.
