Castello Banfi's innovative spirit and winemaking expertise is demonstrated in all its wines, but none embodies these qualities as prominently as SummuS. Color: very intense ruby red. Bouquet: rich and ample where the complementary varietal characters of Cabernet and Syrah create an explosion of sensations. Taste: full, powerful, muscular, but balanced. Great finish. The 3 varieties are vinified separately with variable macerations from 10 to 18 days. After alcoholic fermentation, the individual varietial wines, are transferred to French oak barriques where they are aged separately for 12-14 months. Subsequently, they are blended and the wood-aging continues for an additional 10-12 months. Bottle-aging follows for 6 months.
