San Polo Brunello, made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso, is produced from estate vines in the Montalcino appellation.  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. This is a wine that truly reflects its pedigree and meticulous treatment in both the vineyard and cellar.

Tasting Notes

Intense ruby-red in color with garnet hues, San Polo Brunello offers classic aromas of violets, small red berries, and more subtle notes of coffee and tobacco. It is warm and full-bodied on the palate, with ripe, firm tannins balanced by a lively acidity, and the flavors unfold into a long, well-rounded finish.

Food Pairing

It is an excellent accompaniment to roasted meats, wild fowl, and grilled filet mignon.
