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.
Color is an intense red, with shades of mauve. The scents are ample and rich, the fruity notes of plums join a slight balsamic aroma, along with perfumes of toasted coffee and tobacco. In the mouth, you immediately feel important, yet soft, structure with the sweetness of the tannins that give it great elegance and a long finish. This wine is well inclined to aging.
