Banfi 2016 Excelsus Red (Toscana)

#49 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2020
Return to List

A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this red has alluring aromas of botanical herb, woodland berry, blue flower and a whiff of warm spice. Full bodied and loaded with finesse, the smooth, delicious palate doles out juicy raspberry, black cherry jam, tobacco and licorice before a coffee-bean finish. Fresh acidity and a backbone of firm, fine-grained tannins provide balance and structure. Drink 2022–2036. Kerin O’Keefe
