Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Alle Mura 2008

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 Advocate 93 points (Feb 2014)
The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio alle Mura pushes the Brunello boundaries to an extreme. It will probably not appeal to everyone, but no matter how you cut it, this Riserva does indeed offer a memorable and delectable experience. This was a difficult vintage that shows beautifully in this bottling. A dark, inky appearance gives way to bold aromas of pressed fruit, prune and dark spice. The tannins show a degree of softness and are utterly void of that green, astringent after-bite you sometimes get with Brunello. Tangy black pepper and licorice add liveliness to the long finish. Drink: 2017-2027.

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.
