a fragrant bouquet of fruit, oak and spice. SummuS is characterized by a rich color and lively dance of ripe soft-fruit flavors.
Wine Enthusiast 93 points - Concentrated and chunky, offering black cherry, blackberry, briar and spice flavors. The tannins are dense yet well-integrated, with a touch of herbs gracing the finish. Best from 2016 through 2024.—B.S.
Castello Banfi's 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 Sangiovese (used regionally to make the famed Brunello di Montalcino) which contributes body; Cabernet Sauvignon, fruit and structure; and Syrah, elegance, character and a fruity bouquet. SummuS is one of Bayway's favorite Super Tuscan wines and a perfect choice for lovers of Italian wines! "Summus is a delicious blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah that opens with a round and soft bouquet with plush layers of blackberry, chocolate, cherry liqueur, toasted almond, tobacco and leather. There's a slight bite to the tannins that will set this wine forward many years in terms of its aging potential. Drink after 2018." - Wine Enthusiast
