This was somewhat over the hill when we had it. Almost brownish tone and nose of preserved plums in soya sauce, an Asian context. Potentially due to suboptimal storage conditions. Almost unnoticeable tannins, flabby. Okay for a first few sips but gradually became too weighty to be enjoyed.
External Reviews for Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Alle Mura
Chunky red, with aromas of berry, mint, cherry and wet earth. Full-bodied and velvety, with lots of fruit and a long, minty finish. A delicious example of the quality to be found in the 95 Brunello vintage. Drink now through 2005. 46,000 cases made.... Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1995 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 750ml
