[4/5] Castello Banfi Florus 05 (Italy)

The nose of this suggests it is straight brandy, however the taste is a different matter altogether. Incredibly sweet, with pervasive honey and raisin flavors, it is quite a mouthful - though the alcohol content is undetectable. It offers a wonderfully complex finish that simply vanishes off the palate, belying the substantial body which was rolling around the tongue only seconds earlier. Fans of vintage sherry will surely take to this.
