Castello Banfi Excelsus 2010

Castello Banfi Excelsus 750ML 2010      
Sku: 52224

An extremely limited release produced in only favorable vintages, ExcelsuS is an extraordinary wine made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Each varietal is macerated and fermented for 20-25 days; then aged separately in French oak barrique for one year. They are blended, and further matured in the bottle for an additional one to two years

Tasting notes
ExcelsuS is stylish and well-structured with a remarkable concentration of fruit and tannin. A densely colored, ruby-hued red with garnet tones, this austere wine offers an opulent bouquet that hints of plum, black currant and bell pepper.

 Wine Spectator 92 points (Mar 31 2015)
Showing sweet dried cherry and plum flavors, this is ripe and fluid, accented by leather, tea and spice. Firm, with refined tannins on the finish. This would pair nicely with a boar ragu. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now. 175 cases imported.-BS

Food pairing
ExcelsuS complements red meats, game, rich-tasting dishes and full-flavored cheeses.
