Brunello from San Polo has a lengthy ageing potential and can further improve with extended bottle ageing. This is due both to the characteristics of the soils on which the grapes are grown - the calcareous content provides ideal conditions for Sangiovese - and the position of the vineyards on the beautiful hills at San Polo.
Intense ruby red with garnet hues, clear and glossy.
The bouquet shows typical aromas of violets and small red berries, followed by subtle nuances of forest undergrowth, aromatic wood, a touch of vanilla and jammy mixed fruit followed by subtle hints of coffee. It is intense, persistent, broad and ethereal.
Full-bodied and warm on the palate, with a densely-woven texture and robust body, while the finish is persistent with rounded tannins.
