Tasting notes
Colour: intense ruby red. Bouquet: fresh and fruity, with typical varietal notes of cherry and blackberry, eriched by more complex hints of licorice, tobacco and hazelnut. Taste: large and soft structure, showing a surprisingly long finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Jun 2013)
A recent addition to the range, the 2011 Rosso di Montalcino Poggio alle Mure is drop-dead gorgeous. Black cherries, licorice, tar, smoke and menthol all jump from the glass in this boisterous, expressive Rosso. The tannins are a bit firm for the vintage, but they are also well-balanced. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019.

Wine maker notes
This Rosso di Montalcino of great elegance results from the perfect combination of tradition and innovation. Research in the vineyards, clonal selection and unique personality distinguish the wines from the Poggio alle Mura range, the prestigious selection by Castello Banfi.

Food pairing
Ideal accompaniment to red meat and savory game, as well as perfect match to medium-aged cheeses. Its good structure makes it capable of long-term aging.
