Area of Production:
Sloping vineyards surrounding the historic Poggio alle Mura
(the walled hilltop) castle. This area was chosen because it is
particularly suited to growing extraordinary Sangiovese.
Yellowish brown, sandy topsoil, coarse, calcareous,
substratum of sea sediment originating from the Pliocene
Epoch. Abundant rounded rocks.
100% Sangiovese, from three Banfi Estate-researched clones.
The grape harvest is followed by a maceration of 12-14
days. Temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation (27-
29°C) takes place in the Horizon hybrid stainless steel and
wood tanks. Poggio alle Mura Riserva ages for a minimum
of five years with at least two in oak, predominantly French
oak barriques (90%) and large casks (10%).
Color: Deep ruby-red with garnet reflections.
Bouquet: Rich and ample, with hints of plum jam, coffee,
cacao, cigar box, and spice.
Taste: Dense, lush, supple with firm tannins that create
a velvety, harmonious and lingering finish.
Alcohol Content: 15.4%.
Total Acidity: 5.1 g/l.
Particularly suited to accompany grilled and roasted meats,
game and aged cheeses. Perfect for long aging.
