Winemaker's Notes

"Focused and pretty, with wonderfully integrated tannins and plenty of ripe fruit. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, layered finish. Always excellent. Best after 2005. 930 cases made."
-Wine Spectator

Brunello di Montalcino was born in 1866 from the idea to vinify the pure grape Sangiovese. The result is a wine extremely important, full bodied, powerful but with extraordinary elegance, destined to develop characteristics produced by prolonged ageing. The Brunello that we produce at San Polo is produced only from our own vines from which we select a lesser quantity of grapes per hectare than that provided in the Disciplines, which is 80 quintals per hectare. We are particularly attentive to vinification procedures in the cellar which requires a long maceration at controlled temperature with frequent repassings. The wine is aged for 24 months in french barrique and we allow a period of refining in the bottle of at least 15 months before the wine is ready to drink.

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
