1999 Castello Banfi "Summus" Sant' Antimo
*Editors' Choice* Luscious and bold, with a round, masculine bouquet of blackberry, bitter chocolate and a whiff of coconut. The palate sports perfect harmony; it's full of cola, cherry, plum and espresso. The finish is tight and right on the money. Lovely stuff from a fine vintage; a wine made in the rich, sweet, modern style. The blend is Sangiovese, Cabernet and Syrah.
Gorgeous aromas of blackberries, spices and licorice, with hints of meat. Full-bodied, with extremely refined tannins and a long, long finish. All in finesse and style. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Best after 2004.
