...Alluring nose of cinnamon, cedar, mint and iris. Wonderfully sweet in the mouth, with remarkably pure, fresh flavors of ripe plum, bing cherry and vanilla bean. Silky tannins and intriguing whiffs of cocoa and cassis on the lingering finish... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1997 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Alle Mura 750ml

Intense aromas of smoke and coffee open to layers of beautiful, pure fruit. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins. Absolutely gorgeous. Just like the 1997. I love it. Drink now through 2015.

Wonderful aromas of blackberries, raspberries and flowers. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. A very fine wine. Always a winner. Drink now through 2008.

Dark ruby red. Aromas of blackberry, dried flowers and cherry. Very intense and concentrated nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long flavorful finish. Lots of light vanilla and crushed dark fruits on the finish. Solid now, but better with age. Best after 2010.

A gigantic wine, this delivers tons of fruit flavors and tannins, yet is superbly balanced. Full-bodied, with fully ripe tannins and a spicy, fruity aftertaste. Best wine even from this winery. Best after 2001.

Blockbuster. Incredibly intense black cherry aromas, with hints of mint and licorice. It soon turns to flowers. Full-bodied, and full-throttled, with masses of tannins and concentrated fruit. Very extracted. Still needs time. Best after 2006.

Blockbuster. Incredibly intense black cherry aromas, with hints of mint and red licorice. It soon turns to flowers. Full-bodied, and full-throttled, with masses of tannins and concentrated fruit. Very extracted. Needs time still. Best after 2006. 5,0... Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1997 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Poggio All'Oro Riserva 750ml
