Reviews for 1997 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Poggio All'Oro

WS 96
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2007
Dark ruby red. Aromas of blackberry dried flowers and cherry. Very intense and concentrated nose. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long flavorful finish. Lots of light vanilla and crushed dark fruits on the finish... Dark ruby red. Aromas of blackberry dried flowers and cherry. Very intense and concentrated nose. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long flavorful finish. Lots of light vanilla and crushed dark fruits on the finish. Solid now but better with age.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Best after 2010. 5000 cases made. –JS

Full bright ruby. Cherry liqueur coffee and exotic woodsmoke on the superripe nose. Big and chewy on the palate; a broad oaky wine with a strong impression of extract and plenty of personality. Flavors of crystallized red... Full bright ruby. Cherry liqueur coffee and exotic woodsmoke on the superripe nose. Big and chewy on the palate; a broad oaky wine with a strong impression of extract and plenty of personality. Flavors of crystallized red berries coffee and mocha. Finishes with huge tannins that avoid dryness. Very true to the vintage.
