Winemaker Notes: "Our Brunello from San Polo has a lengthy ageing potential and can further improve with extended bottle ageing. This is due both to the characteristics of the soils on which the grapes are grown - the calcareous content provides ideal conditions for Sangiovese - and the position of the vineyards on the beautiful hills at San Polo."
Intense and bright ruby red with garnet highlights, this wine reveals typical aromas of violets and small red berries. There is a distinctive aroma of woodland undergrowth, aromatic wood and a light note of vanilla and preserved fruit, followed by subtle nuances of coffee. The nose is intense, persistent, broad and ethereal.
95 Points James Suckling: "Wonderful aromas of ginger, plum, lemongrass and ripe berry. Full body and silky tannins with a depth of fruit and a long, long finish. A fantastic wine for the vintage. Can age this, but delicious already. Better than the 2010."
