Late Night - Good Wine.


Tonight, I had the opportunity to try a 1981 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino. Brownish garnet with light ruby hues, thinning to the rim. An ethereal bouquet of toast, charred meat and cedar mingled with varietal hints of baked earth and sour cherry. Medium bodied and oh, so velvety after all these years...

Deep black cherry and raspberry flavors dance with anise and dark chocolate. Intense and refined all in one.

I can sense a deep and costly affection growing...
