Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 2008 DOCG

Banfi, one of Montalcino’s leading estates, effectively reinvented and popularized Brunello in the late 1970s by modernizing the wine without eviscerating its character or its Tuscan roots.  They’ve been making fine Brunello even since.  Though firm and dense and replete with the dark minerality characteristic of Brunello, Banfi’s 2008 is remarkably approachable now.  Try it with a grilled Porterhouse steak. – Michael Apstein (9/2013)
