Castello Banfi Sant'Antimo Excelsus 2001
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. 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. ExcelsuS complements red meats, game, rich-tasting dishes and full-flavored cheeses. ExcelsuS is stylish and well-structured with a remarkable concentration of fruit and tannin.
