Brunello di Montalcino 'Poggio alle Mura' Banfi 2017

The Brunello di Montalcino “Poggio alle Mura” is the expression of the vineyards nera to Banfi Castle. It is an elegant, rich and smooth wine, aged for 12 months in barriques and, for a small percentage, in big oak barrels. Scents of wild fruits in jam, sweet spices, tobacco, underbush and pepper animate a smooth, vigorous and persistent taste
