This wine represents a niche production in terms of Castello Banfi’s much larger bottle numbers. This is a crafted wine that is the focus of special attention in both the vineyard and the winery. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio alle Mura is a beautiful creation and a wine of impressive depth and personality. The heat of the vintage has been captured and harnessed in expert style. The wine is bold and opulent, but it never feels jammy or flat. Despite its bulk, the wine moves with grace and light feet. It comes together with explosive intensity. Castello Banfi is on a steady upward quality trajectory, as demonstrated by these delicious results.
