Winemaker Notes

Poggio alle Mura is a beautiful deep red. The complexity of the aromas reveals notes of blackberry jam, tobacco and vanilla. In the mouth one immediately feels the great, soft and well balanced structure. The final is soft and persistent; this wine is certainly endowed with enormous potential of aging.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 97
James Suckling
A wine that sneaks up on you. It starts up slowly with dried-berry, chocolate and dried-lemon character. Full body, chewy tannins and a long, long finish. A wine that shows such layered, in-depth character. Tight and exciting. Give it three to four years more before drinking.
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The special vineyard selection 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Alle Mura opens to brooding dark concentration and an impressive sense of depth. The aromas that characterize the wine are in a school of their own. Instead of the standard red cherry and rose, this expression of Sangiovese gives you rich layers of blackberry pie, Indian spice, cured meat, wet terra-cotta, tar and black licorice. Some 90% of the wine is aged in French barrique and the remaining portion sees large oak casks made with Slavonian oak. Dive further and you begin to sense chocolate and toasted espresso. The tannin management is excellent and there's a distant point of textural firmness that will soften with a few more years of cellar aging. Brunello Poggio alle Mura is one of the biggest wines of the vintage, and you can't knock the quality.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A beefy style, with cherry, plum, leather and licorice flavors gaining support from the dense, grainy tannins. More impressive up front than on the long yet subtle finish. Best from 2019 through 2035. 3,300 cases made.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
Poggio Alle Mura is dark and sensual in 2010, with sweet black fruit flavors balanced by notes of cocoa, black peppercorn, licorice and espresso. Hints of smoked meat add depth to the tangy black fruit flavors. Aged primarily in French oak barriques, it’s made in a rich and forward style.

Castello Banfi, Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Image of winery
In 1978 John and Harry Mariani, owners of the U.S. wine importer Banfi Vintners, established the award winning vineyard estate and winery Castello Banfi in the Brunello region of Tuscany. A constellation of single vineyards located on ideal sites cover about one third of the 7,100 acre (2,830 hectares) estate. The remaining land consists of bucolic meadows, olive and plum groves, and woodland. Central to the property is a medieval castle that functions as a hospitality center, hosting visitors at a full service restaurant, enoteca and museum dedicated to the history of glass and its relation to wine.
