Rated 94 by Wine Spectator
Focused aromas and flavors of violet, black currant, blackberry and chocolate mark this suave red, which has both power and finesse, with a dense matrix of tannins and vibrant acidity for support. Fine length and energy on the finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Best from 2021 through 2033. 3,300 cases made, 500 cases imported.
Rated 94 by James Suckling
Very pretty currant and cherry aromas with undertones of cream and vanilla. Full-bodied, tight and tannic. Yet, finely polished and textured. Drink after 2021.
Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
The 2015 SummuS (spelled with a capital S on the end) is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. This Tuscan red delivers rich intensity and ripe fruit intensity that feels balanced and accessible. The wine is bold and deeply layered with dark fruit, smoke, grilled herb and savory tobacco. The 2015 vintage shows extra concentration and density.

Winery Banfi

Region: Tuscany

The beautiful region of Tuscany has been associated with wine production for almost three thousand years, and as such is one of the oldest and most highly respected wine producing regions in the world. The hot, sunny climate supports quite a wide range of grapes, but the grape varietals most widely grown across this large region are Sangiovese and Vernaccia, both of which are used in the production of Tuscany's most distinctive red and white wines. Cabernet Sauvignon and other imported grape varietals have also flourished there for over two hundred years, but it wasn't until the 1970's and the rise of the 'Super Tuscans' that they were widely used, when the fine wineries of the region began experimenting with Bordeaux style red wines to great effect.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
