Charles Scicolone: 2004 “the best Brunello Banfi has ever produced”

VinoWire contributor emeritus Charles Scicolone filed the following note last week based on his tasting of Banfi 2004 Brunello di Montalcino at Vino 2009 in New York City in January 2009. Widely recognized as one of the leading U.S. authorities on Italian wine, Charles is the author of Charles Scicolone on Wine.

Brunello di Montalcino 2004 Banfi

The wine was earthy and minerally with fruit and tannin that will make it age well. There were hints of black fruit and violets. It had good body and structure. It seemed like classical Brunello to me, very traditional. The best Brunello that Banfi has ever produced.
