The Castello Banfi estate is nestled between the Orcia and Ombrone rivers on the southern slopes of Montalcino in Tuscany. A constellation of single vineyards dot one third of this three-thousand hectare domain, each unique in its own terroir yet united in a singular heritage and production style.
The Sangiovese vines for the Poggio alle Mura Brunello red wine grow in Banfi’s historic Poggio alle Mura sandy, calcareous and rock filled vineyard near Montalcino at an altitude of 210-220 m.
The grapes were harvested by hand, meticulously sorted and destalked followed by a maceration of 12-13 days and fermentation on the skins in temperature controlled stainless steel and wood tanks. 90% of the wine was aged for 2 years in French oak barriques - and the remaining 10% in Slavonian oak casks. Before release, the wine was bottle-aged for an additional 12 months.
Longevity 10-15 years.
