Intense and bright ruby red 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. The wine is warm, with a densely-woven and robust texture, while
the finish is persistent with roundlydefined
The wine's elegance and harmonious personality allow to pair well with highly-structured cuisine such as red meats and game accompanied by
mushrooms and truffles. It is ideal with matured cheeses, such as Parmigiano Reggiano and Tuscan pecorino.
"A stellar wine with incredible density, concentration and personality. Soft, smooth and supple until those still-young tannins appear on the close, giving the wine a firm backbone. Black fruit, cherry, rum cake, plum, black pepper and cured meat. A beautiful ensemble with deep, deep layers of beauty. Freshness too."
"Interesting aromas of blackberries, mahogany and ginseng. Full body, with dried mushroom, fruit and black tea. Complex and delicious, with an impressive build up of tannins. Milk chocolate too. Best in 2015."
"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous. It may be the very best wine I have ever tasted from San Polo. Sweet red cherries, flowers, mint and spices are woven together beautifully in this juicy, sexy Brunello. The 2007 keeps getting better with time in the glass. Readers looking for a Brunello that will drink well with a minimum of cellaring will find a lot of pleasure here. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. "
The Wine Advocate
"A spicy version, sporting cinnamon, allspice, cardamom and licorice aromas and flavors. There's a core of cherry, along with bright acidity and firm tannins. Elegant and forward, with fine length. Best from 2015 through 2030."
