2003 Castello Banfi Excelsus

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Sant’ Antimo Rosso DOC. This is surprisingly fresh considering the hot 2003 vintage and the over ripeness flavors that characterized most of the wines.

2003 Castello Banfi Excelsus

Deep dark red garnet color. Developed nose, good intensity and mild complexity, showing aromas of plums, ripe currants, tobacco and spices. Full bodied, fills your mouth completely, structured and well balanced, lush flavors on the palate and a medium to long finish. Briefly: mouth-filling, lush and ripe wine. 13% alc (90/100)
