    Winemaker's Notes:

    "Luscious and bold, with a round, masculine bouquet of blackberry, bitter chocolate and a whiff of coconut. The palate sports perfect harmony; it's full of cola, cherry, plum and espresso. The finish is tight and right on the money. Lovely stuff from a fine vintage; a wine made in the rich, sweet, modern style. The blend is Sangiovese, Cabernet and Syrah."
    -Wine Enthusiast

    This Super Tuscan red wine blend has lovely flavors of ripe cherry, plum, white pepper, spice and vanilla-oak, a rich texture and a polished, lingering finish.

    Castello Banfis innovative spirit and winemaking expertise is demonstrated in all its wines, but none embodies these qualities as prominently as Summus.

    A wine of towering elegance, Summus is an extraordinary blend of Brunello di Montalcino which contributes body; Cabernet Sauvignon, fruit and structure; and Syrah, elegance, character and a fruity bouquet. Each wine is individually vinified and aged one year in French oak barrique to develop its unique style, then masterfully interwoven with the others to achieve a rare dimension of taste. Two years bottle-aging brings forth a fragrant bouquet of fruit, oak and spice. Summus is characterized by a rich color and lively dance of ripe soft-fruit flavors.

    Summus marries well with all red meats, stews, hearty pasta dishes and cheeses.
