Castello Banfi Super Tuscans 2018 Excelsus Toscana IGT

The aromas of redcurrants, raspberries and orange are so attractive and flow out to a full body with integrated tannins that are creamy and fine. So delicious to drink now, but better after 2024.

Sweet, polished, focused and expressive, playing the grapefruit, pear and spice flavors against bracing acidity. This avoids being cloying, and persists harmoniously. Delicious now, but should deepen with cellaring. Drink now through 2025.— H.S. (5 March 2015)

Penetrating aromas suggest lemon oil and citrus blossom, with a hint of terpene. This is the driest version of this wine to date, with residual sugar down around 0.5%. Pear skin, pear flesh and citrus carry it through a lengthy finish. May 2014

BEST BUY ~ The sweetness gauge on the back label indicates this as medium dry, and at 3.2% residual sugar, there is more than a hint of sweetness. It’s all in fine balance, full flavored, fruity and round. A mix of peaches, apricots and Mandarin oranges makes this an interesting Riesling with some complexity. — […]
