2016 San Polo Brunello Di Montalcino Italy

From: $115.00

2016 San Polo Brunello Di Montalcino Italy – Brunello is a red wine of great power and elegance, the ultimate expression of Sangiovese. In Montalcino it is characterized by its reddish-brown colour and intense aromas and flavours.

At San Polo, the Allegrini estate in Montalcino, their Brunello is the fruit of tremendous love and respect for the land and a wine based on strong ethics, quality, and sustainability. Grapes are hand harvested in small 17kg crates towards the end of September. Soft crushing of the grapes after careful selection of the berries. 30 months in 1000L, 2000L and 4000L oak casks. This is followed by at least 6 months ageing in the bottle before it is released onto the market.

Intense ruby red color with garnet reflections, clean and bright. The nose expresses the typical aromas of violet and small red fruits. There are hints of underbrush, aromatic wood, vanilla, and jam, followed by subtle notes of intense and persistent coffee. It is a warm wine in the mouth, with a dense and full-bodied texture. The finish is long, with well-defined tannins. Brunello di San Polo, thanks to the characteristics of the land from which it comes, withstands long aging and improves with time in the bottle.

The elegance and harmonious body of the wine allow combinations with very structured dishes such as red meats, feathered and furred game, possibly accompanied by mushrooms and truffles. Excellent with cheeses such as aged tome, Parmigiano Reggiano and Tuscan pecorino.
