            Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino 2016 DOC

            The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino delivers just the right level of intensity and fruity pizzazz. This informal Rosso sports a tonic ruby color with variety-driven tones of blueberry and wild raspberry. That fruit is especially energetic in this classic vintage.

              Rainstorm Pinot Noir 2016

              Light and simple, and all the better for it, this wine leads with a high-toned red-cherry scent and flavors to match. It has a mildly granular texture, emphasizing fruit-skin tannins that would pair nicely with chicken sausages.
