1998 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura
"Superconcentrated aromas, with loads of jam, almost raisin aromas, with hints of spices and flowers. Full-bodied, with good and refined tannins and a medium finish. A bit short. Should develop with age. Best after 2004. 10,000 cases made."-Wine Spectator Seductive, silky, smoky red that is deep ruby in color with a nose that explodes with violets, fruits and berries as well as cigar box, cedar and exotic spices. Unfiltered to retain subtle nuances.
