Wine Critic Reviews:

A dark and brooding Brunello with lots of blackberry and blueberry character. Full body, a wealth of fruit and a flavorful finish. Kir-like. Made from biodynamically-grown grapes.

James Suckling | 96 JS
Bright ruby-red. Raspberry syrup, milk chocolate, violet and mocha on the fresh nose. Silky-smooth, intense and very ripe; lively but harmonious acidity energizes the raspberry, floral and sweet spice flavors. Finishes with mounting but polished tannins and noteworthy length, not to mention intriguing floral perfume. Still very youthful, this needs time to develop fully and show all it can really give.

Vinous Media | 92 VM
Baked plum, crushed violet, dark spice and wild berry aromas are front and center. It's full-bodied and youthfully austere, showing Marasca cherry, tobacco leaf and star anise set against taut tannins and bright acidity. Give it time to fully develop. Drink 2023–2033.

Wine Enthusiast | 92 WE
Certified in 1994, San Polino is one of the pioneering estates in Montalcino for organic viticulture. Owners Luigi Fabbro & Katia Nussbaum also employ biodynamic farming practices, with minimal use of SO2. It takes some coaxing, but red liquorice, violet and wild forest berries eventually surface. While more approachable than the Helichrysum, this will require some ageing for the compact tannins to unfold. The property totals a mere 4.5ha. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.

Region Tuscany: Italian culture worships the concept of a shared meal, and their wines scream for a chance to be uncorked with your friends and family. The region's Mediterranean climate and hilly landscape combine to create a beautiful viticultural environment, where every chosen grape is brought to its full potential and transmuted into drinks worthy of gods. The vineyards are planted along the higher reaches of the hill slopes, creating a gorgeous view of the Italian landscape. Once your lips kiss the wine, you're sent spiraling down a veritable whirlpool of pure flavor, touching upon notes of sensuous cherry, nuts, floral hints and undertones of honey and minerals. The wines can be as sweet as a fresh summer romance, and carry an air of dignity and elegance about them that can stimulate your intellect for months as you contemplate the seemingly infinite intricacies and details in the texture. Tuscany is an important part of Italian viticulture, and sampling their wines is the closest you can get to visiting this heavenly region and experiencing the culture.
Type of Wine Brunello: As you indulge in some fine Brunello, and you gaze into the deep brown elixir, your tongue will almost pulsate with excitement, as rich flavors of black cherry, chocolate, black raspberry, and blackberry are woven together like a heartfelt poem. An earthy, leathery undertone provides excellent contrast next to all the fruit, rounding out the experience .
