    This wine shows an extraordinarily engaging and complex nose full of spice, plum, leather, green tea and an elegance in the aromatics that is fascinating. The wine is dark red, not opaque but seemingly perfect for Brunello. It displays very powerful structure with lots and lots of tannins but these are very fine with no harshness. This is perhaps the most powerful of all of the '97 Riserve I have tasted; it will need many years in your cellar. Banfi is the largest producer of Brunello in Montalcino and covers a huge expanse of territory to the southwest of Montalcino iover land with a mixed continental Miocene deposit of sand and sandy-clay soil.
