CASTELLO BANFI POGGIO ALL'ORO BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO RISERVA 2010
Country: Italy, Tuscany, Brunello Di Montalcino
Grape Varieties: 100% Sangiovese
First vintage produced: 1985

95 points Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate

Only made in the best vintages, this wine represents the pinnacle of Castello Banfi`s quality production. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio All`Oro is a stunning achievement and will serve as a benchmark for this estate`s future endeavors. The bouquet delivers both power and elegance with dried cherry, grilled herb and delicate layers of spice. This ensemble is seamless and balanced. The wine makes a statement without speaking in a loud voice and that`s what I like best about this Brunello. In the mouth, this young wine offers a fresh fruit presentation that promises to evolve slowly. The solid tannic structure and the wine`s fresh acidity will also contribute to its longevity.
Robert Parker 3/2016

Estate – bottled, in limited quantities, only in exceptional years from our finest “Poggio all’Oro” vineyard, where in near perfect conditions of climate, soil and sun the celebrated Sangiovese grape achieve greatness. Aged for a total of five years, including a minimum of two years in French oak barriques, this wine emerges with exceptional depth, character and ageing potential.

The Grape
Sangiovese
A black grape widely grown in Central Italy and the main component of Chianti and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano as well as being the sole permitted grape for the famed Brunello di Montalcino.

It is a high yielding, late ripening grape that performs best on well-drained calcareous soils on south-facing hillsides. For years it was blighted by poor clonal selection and massive overcropping - however since the 1980s the quality of Sangiovese-based wines has rocketed upwards and they are now some of the most sought after in the world.
It produces wines with pronounced tannins and acidity, though not always with great depth of colour, and its character can vary from farmyard/leather nuances through to essence of red cherries and plums. In the 1960s the advent of Super Tuscans saw bottlings of 100% Sangiovese wines, as well as the introduction of Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon blends, the most famous being Tignanello.
