Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

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

Wine AdvocateShowing craftsmanship and care, the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a classic interpretation of Sangiovese from a warm vintage. It is generous and immediate with dried cherry aromas, blackberry, spice, leather and pressed rose. This is not a banal Brunello by any stretch. The more you dig deep into the bouquet, the more there is to discover. I detected hints of rosemary and sharper notes of pecorino cheese. Together, they paint a pretty picture of both the grape and the territory.

Wine SpectatorElegant and intense, this tightly coiled red offers strawberry, cherry and spice flavors. Shows good grip on the finish, where tobacco and mineral elements emerge. Best from 2017 through 2028. 6,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of menthol, toast, espresso and mature black-skinned fruit come together on this accessible, full-bodied red. The ripe, chewy palate offers cherries marinated in spirits, blackberry jam, vanilla and a confectionary note alongside velvety tannins. You'll also note the warmth of alcohol on the midpalate.
