Banfi Poggio Alle Mura Brunello di Montalcin 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Shows dried raspberry and cinnamon on the nose. Full-bodied, with an impressive density of fruit and round tannins. Long and flavorful. Just starting to open up. Powerful and rich.

Castello Banfi Brunello di montalcino 2004 Este vino fué algo sorprendente. Su color granate opaco denota su edad y los aromas balsámicos y de aceituna sobresalen en nariz para luego aparecer esa fruta negra madura y mezclarse con la especia. En boca tiene una entrada ligera para luego expandirse con esa acidez característica, sorprende un poco el cuerpo ligero que tiene con esos taninos jugosos y aterciopelados. El final es algo único siendo muy prolongado y muy sedoso.

Schön dunkles und sattes Rubin. Der edel anmutende Duft von Dörrfrüchten und sauberem Holz sowie die feingliedrige Frucht (dunkle Beeren, etwas Minze) am Gaumen machen diesen Wein zu einem höchst erfreulichen Trinkvergnügen. Der Wein wirkt sehr harmonisch: Perfekte Verschmelzung von Fruchtkomponenten und Holzaromen, geschmeidig gegliedert die Tannine, kompakt und vielschichtig das Finale. Ein wunderbarer Brunello.

Banfi's first unfiltered wine, encompassing a full body and complexity unique to the genre. The wine is deep ruby tending toward garnet in color and has aromas of violets, sweet ripe red fruits and berries as well as cigar box, cedar and exotic spices like clove and cardamom. The finish is long and persistent. Poggio alle Mura Brunello di Montalcino is best exhibited with game, red meats, roasts, hearty stews and rich powerful cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano.

with fine tannins and a long caressing finish. It\'s so integrated and refined. The tannins are finely knit. Benchmark for the style and excellence of the vintage.\ "\

Brunello di Montalcino was Italy's first wine to be accorded D.O.C.G. status, a testament to its aristocracy, balance and fabulous proclivity for aging. Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italy’s most celebrated and this 2006 is outstanding. James Suckling scored it 95 points saying "Lots of sandalwood, with blueberry and blackberry aromas and hints of dried flowers. Cola too. Full body, with fine tannins and a long caressing finish. It’s so integrated and refined. The tannins are finely knit. Benchmark for the style and excellence of the vintage. Best after 2013."
