Beautiful silky Brunello with such a rounded structure and a delicate structure

Just hitting this after about a three and a half hour decant. Color is very deep ruby, nice. Nose is quite alive with red fruits, and smokey. Tannins still present on palate, dried cherries. I think this needs more time to get going...

Night two, nose has mellowed. Palate is mostly the same, but any tannins are gone, smoother finish tonight. Next bottle should be post 2020.

99' Banfi Poggio All' Oro Riserva. Needed a one hour decanting. A sensational wine that's drinking absolutely phenomenal right now. Edit- If I had an extra hour/2 of decanting?

A good use of oak across the entire range of Banfi in 2010-2011. Very classic in style and true Sangiovese character. Excellent!
