Castello Banfi has done a great job in a classic vintage. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura is an impressive effort with high-quality fruit that rises to the top. The bouquet offers polished lines and linear tones of black cherry, dried blackberry, spice, tobacco and grilled herb. In appearance, the wine is saturated and rich. The finish offers a bright pop of acidity that will serve the wine well as it faces its future evolution.

Intense aromas of blackberry and black truffle follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a gorgeous finish. Plenty of dried cherry to close. A pretty and focused red that needs two or three years to soften.
