Get to know: San Polino, Brunello di Montalcino

Tasting Note

Elegant, well structured and incredibly complex. Dark plums and cherry, blackcurrant, tobacco, spices, liquorice, violet and orange zest are all present. It remains fresh and yet is full bodied, with unbelievably smooth tannins and a long, long finish.

Pair this great wine with something substantial, but also simple like a fine roast leg of lamb with rosemary.

Kate Says

"This is a very special Italian wine from a ripe and appealing vintage. San Polino are one the top producers of Brunello di Montalcino. Their wines have an incredible clarity and pureness of fruit. This is a great red wine for a gift and one to keep in the cellar for a year or two before enjoying it - if you can resist it!"

Producer Info

There is a small nirvana just northwest of Montalcino where Luigi Fabbro and Kaita Naussbaum founded San Polino nearly 30 years ago. The couple set out to create wines that are complete reflections of the biodiversity of the terroir. The estate is a tiny 4 hectares, farmed organically and biodynamically by this couple your pour all of their heart and energy into these sublime wines.

From vineyards around 300m above sea level, the grapes here are hand harvested before being pressed and fermented with natural yeasts. the wines then undergo 45 days of maceration with the skins before a month long malolactic fermentation and a further 20 days lees ageing. Finally the wine spends 5 years in large oak casks, a mixture of Slovakian and French, only 5% of which is new.
