San Polo, Brunello di Montalcino
- In the glass, this Brunello has an intense ruby red colour with garnet hues. The typical aromas of violets and small red berries are followed by hints of vanilla, cedar and coffee. On the palate, it is full-bodied and warm with a densely-woven texture and robust tannins, while the finish is persistent and rounded.
- The grapes were hand picked into 17 kilogram crates. Once at the winery, the berries were selected and softly crushed. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled concrete tanks for up to 22 days with temperatures reaching a maximum of 28-30°C. The wine was then racked into medium-toasted 500 litre Slavonian oak tonneaux where malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was then aged there for a period of 24 months, followed by extended ageing in bottle.
