Sku: 14517

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

Tasting notes
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 92 points (May 2011)
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura emerges from the glass with a burst of tar, smoke, licorice, earthiness and wild cherries. The sheer intensity and muscle of the fruit saturates the palate from start to finish. The 2006 is an especially round, seductive Poggio alle Mura. A few more years in bottle should help the firm tannins soften. The Poggio alle Mura was vinified in steel and aged predominantly (90%) in French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.
