"The purity and polish here shows wonderfully the moment you stick your nose in the glass, with complex aromas of plums, berries, cedar and violets. It’s full-bodied and ever so refined with elegant and intense tannins that take you deep into the wine. This is a thoughtful and finely crafted Brunello that needs time to show you its greatness. From organically grown grapes. Try after 2024." Rating: 98 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (Jan 2022)
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.
