Dark chocolate, anise, tobacco, and black currant on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
More dark chocolate, coffee, and blackberry on the finish
Castello Banfi's Cabernet Sauvignon, Tavernelle, shows muscle and power. It has dark, rich flavor with some earthy Tuscan edges. With loads of dark fruit and chocolate, it will pair well with red meat and hearty dishes. The retail price runs in the $35 range. I recommend this wine, so raise a glass!
