Banfi 2012 Brunello Riserva, Poggio all’Oro

It starts out soft and subtle, giving off aromas of coffee, cassis and smoke and continues that way across the palate and ends with silky tannins: along the way fruit coyly peaks through, not yet ready to completely expose itself, and the minerality also hides within the oaky-smoky cocoon. More feminine in nature than the Alle Mura Brunello, but no less enjoyable, give it a couple of years for the fruit to fully express itself. Drink: 2020-2032.  Rating: ****+
