2010 Banfi "Poggio alle Mura" Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1241439 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A wine that sneaks up on you. It starts up slowly with dried-berry, chocolate and dried-lemon character. Full body, chewy tannins and a long, long finish. A wine that shows such layered, in-depth character. Tight and exciting. Give it three to four years more before drinking. Inner quote mark (10/2015)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The special vineyard selection 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Alle Mura opens to brooding dark concentration and an impressive sense of depth. The aromas that characterize the wine are in a school of their own. Instead of the standard red cherry and rose, this expression of Sangiovese gives you rich layers of blackberry pie, Indian spice, cured meat, wet terra-cotta, tar and black licorice. Some 90% of the wine is aged in French barrique and the remaining portion sees large oak casks made with Slavonian oak. Dive further and you begin to sense chocolate and toasted espresso. The tannin management is excellent and there's a distant point of textural firmness that will soften with a few more years of cellar aging. Brunello Poggio alle Mura is one of the biggest wines of the vintage, and you can't knock the quality. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A beefy style, with cherry, plum, leather and licorice flavors gaining support from the dense, grainy tannins. More impressive up front than on the long yet subtle finish. Best from 2019 through 2035. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Poggio Alle Mura is dark and sensual in 2010, with sweet black fruit flavors balanced by notes of cocoa, black peppercorn, licorice and espresso. Hints of smoked meat add depth to the tangy black fruit flavors. Aged primarily in French oak barriques, it’s made in a rich and forward style. Inner quote mark (12/2015)
