Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura

DOCG

Montalcino Red Wines

Production Area

Dedicated vineyards sloping down from the historic Poggio alle Mura Castle crowning our estate. We chose this patch of land, particularly suited to grow Brunello Sangiovese, to plant the first vineyard resulting from over a decade of research to isolate the optimal selection of clones to produce consistently outstanding Brunello di Montalcino. The vines were planted in 1992. Altitude: 210-220 meters above sea level. Position: Hillside.

GRAPE VARIETIES

100% Sangiovese, from a combination of estate selected clones.

Method of production

The grape harvest is followed by a maceration of 12-13 days. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature - controlled hybrid stainless steel & wood tanks (27-29°C). About 90% of the wine is aged for 2 years in French oak barriques - manufactured according to Banfi’s specifications - and the remaining 10% in Slavonian oak casks. Before release, the wine is bottle-aged for an additional 12 months.

The winemaker comment

The first result of more than two decades of experimental research, Poggio alle Mura is a superb example of the best synthesis of terroir, selection and technological innovation. Estate-bottled from the splendid sun drenched vineyard adjacent to the Castello this Brunello encompasses a full body and complexity unique to the genre.

Intense mauve red color; to well understand this wine it is necessary to oxygen it for a while: it changes from the truffle and mineral flavors to the notes of jam, licorice and tobacco. On the palate a big structure with powerful tannins very good promise for a long aging.  Sweet, long and elegant ending.
