1999 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1007711 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is complex and round with wonderful ripe fruit and richness. I love its generosity, giving so much yet still reserved. So much going on here, mind blowing. Pull the cork! Inner quote mark (4/2011)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Decadent, earthy and opulent, with jam and spice on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, soft finish. There's wonderful density and beautiful fruit. So ready.—'99 Brunello blind retrospective (2009). Drink now. (Web-2010) Inner quote mark

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Rich, dark and muscular, with deep, jammy aromas of plum and blackberry. Banfi toes the line between modern and traditional, and this wine fits their model perfectly. It's a ripe, sizable mouthful, yet it has some true-life edges to it. Inner quote mark (6/2004)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Impressive saturated ruby, extremely dark for Brunello. Brooding aromas of dark berry syrup and licorice; distinct hints of surmaturite Then big, broad and extremely unevolved; highly concentrated but currently monolithic, and not really displaying its fruit. Finishes with big, chewy but ultimately rather fine tannins. (ST) 90+ Inner quote mark (9/2004)
