Our Brunello di Montalcino comes from a lush loamy field on the northern slopes of Montalcino. Full-bodied and structured, it has been described in glowing terms as being fruity, opulent, corpulent, luxurious and delicious.
Lush field on the slopes of Montalcino, with strong clay and marl elements. Good ventilation and sun exposure ensures optimal ripeness each year.
A perfect year in San Polino. Following a relatively wet winter, a cooler than usual spring delayed the onset of growth in the fields. Spring was followed by a beautiful summer, with scattered rainfalls and no temperature extremes. Significant temperature swings between night and day in late summer, favoured acidity and polyphenol development. A near constant breeze ensured grape health, and we bagan harvesting at the beginning of october, in great weather, the grapes having achieved an overall perfect maturation.
