Wine Details







Wine Description

(From 2005 Vintage) Intense ruby red in colour with garnet hues, clear and glossy. The bouquet shows typical aromas of violets and small red berries, followed by subtle nuances of forest undergrowth, aromatic wood, a touch of vanilla and jammy mixed fruit followed by subtle hints of coffee. It is intense, persistent, broad and ethereal. Full-bodied and warm on the palate, with a densely-woven texture and robust body, while the finish is persistent with rounded tannins. The terroir produces a Brunello with a capacity for lengthy ageing. Patient cellaring will further enhance the wine inside the bottle

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) This property was bought and established by Silvia Fertonani and her husband Mario Calzolari. With the 1999 vintage, the rising star of Poggio San Polo established itself brightly in Montalcino’s firmament and this was confirmed with the double Gold Medal for the estate at the 2004 International Wine Challenge (1999 Brunello and 2001 Mezzo Pane). In addition, the 1999 Brunello won the Sangiovese trophy. Following a rift in the family, the estate was put up for sale and bought by Marilisa Allegrini of Verona in 2006. She is planning to invest heavily in the wines and has brought in winemaker read more...Nicolo Biasi to build on the already impressive levels of quality. The wine is deep ruby-red in colour, with ripe, attractive perfumes of blackberries and cherries with a hint of spiced plums. Good depth on the palate with ripe fruit and gentle tannins. It combines good structure with an attractive youthful freshness. (hide)

    (From 2005 Vintage) Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09. Muscular tannins frame cherry and wild strawberry fruit; it finishes warm, with drying tannins. For grilled sausages.
