100% Sangiovese Grosso. Intense ruby red in color, with garnet hues, San Polo Brunello is full bodied and warm in the mouth, with typical aromas of violets and small red fruits followed by subtle notes of coffee. The finish is long, with round and refined tannins surrounding the juicy texture. It is an excellent accompaniment to roasted meats, wild fowl, grilled filet mignon and steaks.
"The 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is a sleek, stylish effort very much in the style of consulting oenologist Carlo Ferrini. This mid-weight Brunello opens to reveal vibrant dark cherries, spices, menthol and licorice with a nice inner sweetness and freshness to its core. The tannins are firm, yet well-integrated into the wine's fabric
San Polo is a new property owned by Marilisa Allegrini, best known for the wines her family produces in Veneto, and importer Leonardo LoCascio, one of the early pioneers in importing high-quality Italian wines into the US. Winemaking is overseen by consulting oenologist Carlo Ferrini.
