Wine AdvocateThis wine is on an impressive upward swing in recent years. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura is a dense, full and generous Brunello. It presents classic aromas of blackberry, dried cherry, pressed rose, cola, tobacco and grilled herb. In fact, it really doesn't leave anything out. The vintage heat has been well-managed thanks to careful fruit selection and custom farming studied for this special vineyard plot. Castello Banfi rarely gets anything wrong. If you are looking for a popular Brunello that delivers the goods in this vintage, this wine makes a great choice. It doesn't offer the off-beat idiosyncrasies and eclectic eccentricities of Montalcino's smaller boutique estates, but it does offer rock solid consistency.
