WINEMAKER’S NOTES: BelnerO is the expression of the solid and indissoluble connection of Castello Banfi with Montalcino territory. This wine celebrates the experience and passion behind Castello Banfi’s 30-year pursuit of excellence in the vineyard as well as in the winery. BelnerO is driven by the Sangiovese grape, the emblematic varietal of Montalcino tradition that was studied and perfected through Banfi’s decades of research, and complemented with small percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot which find on our estate in southern Tuscany their most favorable habitat. BelnerO, with its powerful and well balanced structure, is ideal for a long aging.
FOOD PAIRINGS: Ideal with soups, grilled meat and medium aged cheeses.
