Poggio San Polo Brunello di Montalcino 2005

SKU 38309


San Polo Brunello, made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso, is produced from estate vines in the Montalcino appellation which follow the strict, low yields that are provided in the disciplinare by the local Consorzio. Blessed with vines that enjoy a southeastern exposure in a naturally occurring amphitheatre, San Polo is able to employ organic and biodynamic methods of viticulture that keep these wines pure. Made from 100 Sangiovese Grosso, this wine truly reflects its pedigree and meticulous treatment in both the vineyard and cellar. Intense ruby red in color, with garnet hues, San Polo Brunello is full-bodied and warm in the mouth, with typical aromas of violets and small red fruits followed by subtle notes of coffee. The finish is long, with round and refined tannins surrounding the juicy texture. It is an excellent accompaniment to roasted meats, wild fowl, grilled filet mignon, and steaks.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is a warm, supple wine endowed with gorgeous, expressive dark red berries, licorice, tar and subtle French oak, all of which come together on a soft, mid-weight frame. The finish is long and caressing. This is one of the more open, approachable Brunellos in this vintage and it should be accessible upon release, after which it will drink well for another decade or so. This is a very strong effort for a property in transition. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.

Wine SpectatorDried fruits on the nose, with raisin and grilled meat. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and ripe fruit. There's plenty of new wood, but it all should come together beautifully with bottle age. Best after 2011. 2,915 cases made.
