Wine Advocate

93 points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “The Castello Banfi 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura brings that primary intensity up a notch, and the wine shows nicely integrated aromas of spice, cedar, tar and tobacco. The emphasis here is on freshness and linearity—Poggio alle Mura is also distinguished by the sharpness of its fruit—but you get more fruit weight here and a longer, more determined level of power on the lengthy close. Again, the alcohol content of the wine is very high (at 15.5%) in this 33,992-bottle release.” 02/22

James Suckling

95 points, James Suckling, “This is poised and fresh considering the dryness and heat of the vintage. It’s full-bodied with integrated and firm tannins that are polished and very fine. Extremely well done. Drink after 2023 but already a beauty.” 11/21


94 points, Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: “The 2017 vintage also saw the growth of a pioneering zonation project, which began in 1980. Blueberry and black currant on the nose, a hint of roman mint, then earthy notes, hazelnuts and peony. The mouthfeel is taut and crisp, with brackish tannins and the return of small black fruits.”
