banfi poggio alle mura brunello di montalcino reserva 2013 750ml
Named for the majestic hilltop castle, the grapes come from dedicated vineyards that crown the estate.
100% Sangiovese produced and bottled in Montalcino. Riserva requires an additional year of aging for a total requirement of 5 years. Approximately 70% of the wine is aged for 2 years in French oak barriques and at least 6 months in bottle prior to release. Excellent aging ability.
94 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "Bright and generous, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura opens to a darkly concentrated appearance and bold aromatic intensity. The wine is forthcoming and immediate in appeal. The bouquet is redolent of blackberry, cherry confit, exotic spice, cola and dark chewing tobacco. The mouthfeel shows a higher degree of tannic astringency, however that may come from the oak. Poggio alle Mura sees up to 80% aged in barrique for two years and the rest in botte grand. I'd suggest giving it a few more years to let that firmness subside and soften. The wine is too young to drink now. (ML)"
93 points - Wine Spectator
"A dense, burly style, displaying cherry, iron, leather, earth, tobacco and spice flavors. Unyielding and compact now, yet also complex and long. Best from 2022 through 2035. (BS)"
