James Suckling 93 points - Aromas of iodine and dried wood thread through clear red-berry notes, leading to a palate that
has a fullish core of quite open-knit, ripe cherries. Drink or hold..February/2019
Decanter 91 points - After a severe grape-thinning and early de-leafing to give air and sunlight to the grapes, San Polo waited
until mid-October to harvest. They also reduced the maturation time in wood, ageing the wine in larger casks rather than the
smaller tonneaux that they typically use. The result displays some shy aromas of dried lavender, mint and spice, with greater
depth on the palate. The fruit is round yet firmly framed by grape rather than wood tannins..April/2019
Easy Order for Mediocre Wine
The case of wine had a rather long delay until it came through packaged well. The brunello di Montalcino was a disappointment as it was not as flavorful as many brunellos I've had.
An excellent example of my favorite Italian. Lots of flavor and incredibly smooth. We love it !
