Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Alle Mura 2008

Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Alle Mura 750ML 2008      
Sku: 51417

Called "Poggio alle Mura" to honor the historical name of the medieval fortress crowning the vineyard estate, the wine`s vineyard runs down the slopes surrounding the castle - today called Castello Banfi. Poggio alle Mura is the result of over two decades of research in clonal selection for the Sangiovese varietal. The vineyard is planted a final selection of three of the 15 complementary clones (narrowed from an initial selection of 650) of Sangiovese combined to deliver a consistently superior wine. Poggio alle Mura is also Castello Banfi`s first unfiltered wine, encompassing a full body and complexity unique to the genre. The wine is deep ruby tending toward garnet in color and has aromas of violets, sweet ripe red fruits and berries as well as cigar box, cedar and exotic spices like clove and cardamom. The finish is long and persistent. Poggio alle Mura Brunello di Montalcino is best exhibited with game, red meats, roasts, hearty stews and rich powerful cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano.

 Wine Spectator 92 points (May 7 2014)
Hints of sweet oak spice and chocolate underscore the cherry and plum notes in this rich, dense red. Stays long on the finish, ending with a balanced impression. Best from 2016 through 2024.óB.S.
