Castello Banfi Magna Cum Laude Toscana IGT 2019
The wine has an intense ruby color and a bouquet of aromas such as dark cherries, blackberries, and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with a pleasant texture and flavors of dark fruit, spice, and a hint of oak. The tannins are well-structured and provide a long finish.
Saturated with black currant and blackberry flavors, this red also reveals bell pepper, eucalyptus, iron and tobacco notes. Dense tannins hold court on the finish, while the fruit, savory and mineral elements linger. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese and Syrah. Best from 2024 through 2037. 7,500 cases made, 1,400 cases imported.
A medium-bodied red, offering blackcurrants and crushed stones with some cassis-bush and mint undertones. Creamy and firm, with a bright, racy finish. Drink or hold.
