Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Colour: Intense ruby red in colour with garnet hues, clear and glossy.
Aroma: The bouquet exhibits typical aromas of violets and small red berries. Subtle nuances of forest undergrowth, aromatic wood, a touch of vanilla and jammy mixed fruit then give way to subtle hints of coffee.
Palate: This Brunello is intense, persistent, broad and heady. Full-bodied and warm on the palate, with a densely woven texture and robust body, it has a persistent finish with well-rounded tannins. The particular features of the terroir at San Polo produce a Brunello with a capacity for lengthy ageing, while patient cellaring enhances the wine during ageing in the bottle.
The elegance and harmonious personality of this wine enable it to pair extremely well with highly structured cuisine such as red meats and game, as well as with mushrooms and truffles. It is ideal with matured cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano and Tuscan pecorino.
