Brunello di Montalcino DOCG San Polo, Tasting notes:
Deep ruby red in colour with garnet highlights, it opens with hints of wild berries such as blackberry, blackcurrant and blueberry, followed by liquorice, spices and intense balsamic notes. The tannins are well defined and the finish is long with extraordinary aromatic persistence. It is a wine of great concentration and structure, which amazes the palate with its intensity, elegance and great balance.
San Polo is situated on the south-eastern slope of Montalcino hill, at an altitude of 450 metres, the 22 hectares of the estate, 16 of which are planted with Sangiovese, are characterized by a dry, breezy microclimate, with wide diurnal and seasonal temperature swings. In the cellar, an admirable example of bio-architecture, designed to minimize energy consumption and environmental impact, the grapes are processed with artisan care to enhance the finesse of the Sangiovese aromas. The essence of San Polo, in fact, is to take the wines back to the vineyard that generated them, so as to express the concept of terroir to the full. Man’s intervention is nothing more than bringing the wine closer to nature, adopting a viticulture that respects the soil, the microclimate and the biodiversity of the place, so that the biological cycle of the vineyard and the pedoclimatic context are in perfect harmony.
