      Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2018 (BIO)

      Shiny ruby red. In the nose sour cherry, blackberries and notes of black cherry, delicate scent of vanilla. Warm and smooth on the palate, good structure and very balanced tannins. A fresh, harmonious Tuscan, which does not deny its origin. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino is a chiseled and fruit-driven wine that awakens and satisfies the palate. Although delicate and slender, the bouquet reveals fresh strawberry and blueberry aromas with light spice and potting soil. There is a fine touch of tannic structure that serves to hold the wine tightly together." Robert Parker

      "San Polo lies in one of the best subzones of Montalcino, at up to 450 metres above sea level on the southeast side of the appellation. Great night and day temperature variations and the mostly limestone soil with clay allow very good maturations. The 2018 vintage was calm: the harvest began on 20 September and finished on 5 October. The wine shows a large spectrum of aromas, with blood orange, a smoky and rusty character, and leather. It's responsive on the palate, with orange and raspberry fruit, ripe and silky tannins, and crisp acidity to sustain its complexity with graceful tension. The new label, more authoritative than previously, will aid the perception of consistency for this wine." Decanter

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015

      Medium-light, shiny ruby red. Juicy dark cherries, rose petals, spicy herbs, mint and wild flowers. A wine with depth, silky tannins and a round, smooth finish that will delight lovers of fruit-driven Brunello. The 2015 edition is a prime example of harmony and expression, very successful! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny, rich ruby garnet. Intense and dense nose with aromas of ripe raspberries, some liquorice and plums. Shows fine-meshed tannin with firm bite, fine fruit, firm pressure on the final, clear and straightforward." Falstaff

      "A more delicate style than many 2015s, this displays cherry, strawberry, mineral and tobacco flavors. Builds in weight as the solid matrix of tannins asserts itself on the lively finish. Best from 2022 through 2038." Wine Spectator

      "Recognized by its red shield-shaped label, the Poggio San Polo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a dark and nicely concentrated expression of Sangiovese. This wine shows proverbial meat on its bones with rich cherry and cassis, backed by cola, potting soil and balsam wood. The bouquet grows in intensity as the wine warms in the glass. The tannins are well integrated within the depth and length of the mouthfeel. Give this Brunello a few more years to flesh out and soften." Robert Parker

      "The ripe red fruit here is so expressive and floral, featuring dried rose petals, hibiscus, poppies, dried strawberries and raspberries. It falls inwards on the palate, compressed and captivating, gathering rough-edged strands of tannins as it goes, threading them through an iron-fisted, central core of flavor and texture. Drink from 2025." James Suckling

      "Wild berry, camphor, tobacco and cocoa aromas fill the glass. Smooth, juicy and delicious, the full-bodied palate delivers ripe black cherry, raspberry compote and licorice while firm fine-grained tannins offer support. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced." Wine Enthusiast

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

      Poggio San Polo Brunello 2016 is a selection of the best grapes from the different vineyard sites of the winery. It opens very engagingly with dark fruit, lots of black cherry and dark plum, optimally rounded off by a fine balsamic herbal spice and notes of white pepper. On the palate, the texture is almost perfect, with a suppleness and silkiness that is refreshed and carried by a well-proportioned, refined Sangiovese acidity. Dark berry, long, deep and with a very remarkable, slightly mineral final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Noble shining ruby red. Shows in the nose with nuances of ripe cranberries, raspberries, light pepper tone, in the reverberation the blackberry comes out again. In the mouth polished and juicy, opens up red berry-grainy, spans a fine arc, juicy-salty finish." Falstaff

      "The San Polo 2016 Brunello di Montalcino brings forth dark fruit, cherry, spice, integrated oak tones and balsam herb. This is a round and lightly textured Sangiovese with a long and polished finish. In fact, the mouthfeel delivers more in terms of length and persistence than it does density or richness. It offers a silky, almost glossy disposition that is colored by dried raspberry, wild cherry and blue flower. This wine represents a selection of the best fruit from across various parcels farmed by this estate." Robert Parker

      "Starting out with earthy, savory aromas, this red shows fleeting flavors of black currant and raspberry before settling back into notes of earth, iron and juniper. Firm, dusty tannins guard the finish." Wine Spectator

      "Aromas of underbrush, rose petal, new leather and wild mint shape the nose. The savory, elegantly structured palate shows ripe red cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and cinnamon framed in tightly knit, fine-grained tannins. Bright acidity keeps it radiant." Wine Enthusiast

      "A rich, layered red with blackberry and chocolate, as well as cured-meat and wet-earth undertones. It's full-bodied with depth, intensity and focus. Lovely, velvety tannins and a long, creamy-textured mouth feel. Generous finish with tension." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2012

      Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2012

      Intensity, harmony and elegance - this is San Polos Brunello Riserva from the very good year 2012. Compact bouquet of ripe dark berries, inviting and clear. Very fruity on the palate, opens wide with polished tannin into a never-ending finale. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A slim version for the vintage, this linear red displays cherry, strawberry, floral and spice aromas and flavors. Sweet fruit holds the center, with refined tannins following up on the lingering finish." Wine Spectator

      "For the Riserva, a selection is made at harvest of the thinnest bunches with the smallest berries. It's a classy, polished example with a cherry and vanilla core offset by thyme, sous-bois and cedar notes. Layers of sturdy tannin provide a solid frame for the ripe fruit." Decanter

      "Aromas of ripe plum, underbrush, eucalyptus and star anise emerge in the glass. Polished and firmly structured, the palate delivers fleshy black cherry, strawberry jam, licorice and tobacco set against a backbone of youthfully assertive fine-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "Dark red with some amber at the rim. Sweet red cherry, Asian herbs and woodsy underbrush on the nose. Enters rich and ripe, then slightly more angular and tart in the middle, offering red berry and cherry flavors that are less flinty and herbal than those of the 2013 Brunello from San Polo. Finishes with lipsmacking acidity and an austere quality. Really needs a few years in the cellar to round out. This will likely turn out to be a very good food wine." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "This is a darkly saturated Sangiovese with a very etched and precise fruit profile. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva offers immediate aromas of black cherry liqueur and pressed blackberry. Those berry notes are followed by spice, cinnamon and toasted coffee. This Riserva hits the palate with direct force and precision. It does not show the jammy or cooked notes commonly found in Sangiovese made in this hot vintage." Robert Parker

      "Reserved and cool for this opulent vintage with red fruits and delicate herbal notes. This is a concentrated and deep wine with a ton of dry tannins. Great balance, too. I love the long finish with its minty freshness." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Podernovi" DOCG 2015

      Brunello di Montalcino “Podernovi” DOCG 2015

      One of the best vintages of the last twenty years and San Polo's first single vineyard Brunello. Ruby red colour, not too deep, with light garnet reflections. In the nose floral aromas of violet, cyclamen and jasmine, notes of fresh fruit and spice. In the mouth it is round, full of harmony, with good structure and acidity and very soft tannins, which show an excellent persistence overall. A wine of almost endless length, depth and with a distinct character that will be remembered. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense, sparkling ruby with garnet edge. Very dense and inviting nose, notes of ripe plums, liquorice and dried porcini mushrooms. Fills out the palate, but shows not only fullness, but also a lot of juice and elegance, a very polished, elegant Brunello, long finish." Falstaff

      "Firmly structured, this opens with aromas of underbrush, exotic spice and whiffs of eucalyptus oil. The firm palate evokes black-cherry extract, orange zest, licorice and tobacco set against assertive, close-grained tannins that leave a rather austere, drying finish. Give it time to fully unwind." Wine Enthusiast

      "San Polo's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Podernovi is dark and earthy, with notes of moist soil, savory herbs, and minerals that wafting up from the glass. Mineral-encased ripe red fruits, propelled by vibrant acids with sweet spices and a hint of youthful tannin develop with air. The finish is long and buzzing with zesty acids and spice, along with a coating of fine tannin that tugs at the cheek. There’s a great blending of earth and fruit that makes the Podernovi quite attractive, yet a few years in the cellar should yield an even more balanced wine." Vinous

      "The Poggio San Polo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Podernovi offers great density and textural richness. I would say that this wine is most characterized by the quality of the mouthfeel that wraps smoothly and thickly over the palate. Dark cherry, tobacco, earth, plum and dark fruit add intensity and flavorful substance. The wine's full-bodied approach would match grilled meats or roasts." Robert Parker

      "Lush and fruity, featuring plum, cherry, strawberry and iron aromas and flavors. Bright acidity and dense tannins form the structure as this plays out on the long finish. The excellent youthful balance shows promise for the future." Wine Spectator

      "A dense and layered red with plum, cherry and chocolate character. Full body. Dense and ripe tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Shows layers of fruit and rich tannins. New and exciting wine from here. Try after 2022." James Suckling

      Podernovi is San Polo's great single-vineyard Brunello. Ruby red colour with light garnet reflections. On the nose, floral aromas of violets, cyclamen and jasmine, notes of fresh fruit and spicy notes. In the mouth, round, full of harmony and with a good structure and acidity, as well as very soft tannins that show excellent persistence overall. A wine of almost endless length, depth and with a distinct character that lingers in the memory. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Powerful ruby with a fine garnet rim. Opens with notes of mint and ginger, juicy cherry, a little resinous in the background. Dense and compact on the palate, shows lots of fresh, red berry fruit, gripping tannin." Falstaff

      "Aromas of forest floor, grilled herb, camphor and pipe tobacco mingle on the nose of this full-bodied red. The firm, elegantly structured palate offers juicy Marasca cherry, red currant, licorice and coffee bean. Tightly wound, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity grip the close and lend an ageworthy structure." Wine Enthusiast

      "A tight, chewy red with plums and berries, together with orange-peel and dried-flower undertones. It's full with fine tannins and a long, floral finish. Very reserved now." James Suckling

      "A mix of wild herb, Tuscan scrub, rose, cherry and earth flavors mark this sleek red, which tiptoes between elegance and power, with a layer of chalky tannins underlying it all. With air, the ripe cherry and plum fruit comes forward." Wine Spectator

      "Delicately perfumed and finessed, the San Polo 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Podernovi is very floral and lifted in personality. This vintage is very different than the inaugural 2015 vintage. I remember the previous release for its darker and blacker quality of fruit. This cooler vintage is more lithe and lighthearted, with building aromatic intensity that unfolds with caution and care. Once you've had the wine in your glass, it reveals a succession of sour cherry, wild rose and fresh lavender bud. There are light mineral dustings as well, and the wine is ultimately quite solid and structured. This bodes well for its aging evolution. Fruit comes from a two-hectare parcel in a cool and high position some 450 meters above sea level. The soils are clayey with schistous Galestro." Robert Parker

      Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2015

      Dark red with light reflections. On the nose, this great Riserva shows lots of sweet red cherry, wild berry, Asian herbs and notes of undergrowth. Firm and still very austere on the palate with a well-defined fruit and present acidity. The exceptional structure is flanked by a good tannin framework, which reinforces the austerity and precision. This Riserva is not an easy-drinking wine, but will only find its full expression after a few years of maturation. All components indicate that it will then be one of the best Brunellos that this exceptionally full-bodied vintage has produced. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, rich ruby garnet. Lush, inviting nose with rich notes of ripe plums, pickled cherries and cloves. Lots of ripe, present fruit on the palate, coupled with good freshness, opens with fine-meshed tannin, savoury and long." Falstaff

      "A mix of cherry, plum, leather, rosemary, iron and tobacco flavors ply the sleek profile of this balanced red, which has good grip and a lingering savory aftertaste." Wine Spectator

      "The San Polo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (with 8,000 bottles produced) is a textured wine with hearty fruit and touches of smoked meat and spice. At its core, the wine offers dark fruit, blackberry and ripe plum. The rich fruitiness of the wine cedes to campfire ash, mahogany and furniture wax. These results are sultry and even a bit flashy, with distant background tones of teriyaki and plum sauce." Robert Parker

      "Lovely purity of fruit with ultra fine tannins and depth, finesse and complexity. Black cherries, cedar and some flowers. It's full-bodied with very fine tannins that drive the finish. Give it a year or two to open more, but already so enticing." James Suckling

      Brunello di Montalcino “Vignavecchia” DOCG 2015 · 0,75l in OWC

      Just 72 bottles of this extraordinary creature were released for the German market. At the same time, San Polo's latest growth comes from the oldest vines of the wine estate, the Vignavecchia single vineyard with a size of 2 hectares. The year 2015 brought not only very healthy berries but also ideal acidity and sugar levels. So, it is not surprising that Vignavecchia made it to the podium right away and that this Brunello is one of the highest-rated wines of the dream vintage.

      Intense ruby red. The nose is flooded with ripe red berry fruits, violets, some forest floor and a subtle wood spice. On the palate then breathtakingly deep, complex and with terrific texture. The warm tannins and well-dosed acidity make each sip memorable, and the endlessly long final reverberates long after the bottle is already empty ... This wine fills Brunello lovers with great joy and only the most controlled among them will ever experience the terrific maturation potential of the Vignavecchia 2015. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aromas of underbrush, camphor and tobacco form the nose along with a whiff of prune. Tightly knit and full-bodied, the palate features black-cherry jam, licorice, roasted coffee-bean and toasted notes alongside close-grained, velvety tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "Released in numbered bottles, the Poggio San Polo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vignavecchia is a true beauty with the elegance, distinctive intensity and savory sophisticated flavors that you only get in this storied appellation in the southern half of Tuscany. With fruit from old vines, the wine is naturally denser and richer. This expression also shows more oak shadings, with pretty spice and smoke that frame the dark fruit. These various elements come together with impeccable precision and focus. I suggest giving this wine a few more years of cellar rest." Robert Parker

      "This is a phenomenal new red from San Polo with superb depth and intensity with plum, wet earth and black truffle. Full body. Chewy and ripe tannins and a long and flavorful finish. The depth and beautiful is gorgeous. Needs three or four years to come together." James Suckling

Once you've had the wine in your glass, it reveals a succession of sour cherry, wild rose and fresh lavender bud. There are light mineral dustings as well, and the wine is ultimately quite solid and structured. This bodes well for its aging evolution. Fruit comes from a two-hectare parcel in a cool and high position some 450 meters above sea level. The soils are clayey with schistous Galestro." Robert Parker

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Podernovi" DOCG 2015 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      Brunello di Montalcino “Podernovi” DOCG 2015 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      One of the best vintages of the last twenty years and San Polo's first single vineyard Brunello. Ruby red colour, not too deep, with light garnet reflections. In the nose floral aromas of violet, cyclamen and jasmine, notes of fresh fruit and spice. In the mouth it is round, full of harmony, with good structure and acidity and very soft tannins, which show an excellent persistence overall. A wine of almost endless length, depth and with a distinct character that will be remembered. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense, sparkling ruby with garnet edge. Very dense and inviting nose, notes of ripe plums, liquorice and dried porcini mushrooms. Fills out the palate, but shows not only fullness, but also a lot of juice and elegance, a very polished, elegant Brunello, long finish." Falstaff

      "Firmly structured, this opens with aromas of underbrush, exotic spice and whiffs of eucalyptus oil. The firm palate evokes black-cherry extract, orange zest, licorice and tobacco set against assertive, close-grained tannins that leave a rather austere, drying finish. Give it time to fully unwind." Wine Enthusiast

      "San Polo's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Podernovi is dark and earthy, with notes of moist soil, savory herbs, and minerals that wafting up from the glass. Mineral-encased ripe red fruits, propelled by vibrant acids with sweet spices and a hint of youthful tannin develop with air. The finish is long and buzzing with zesty acids and spice, along with a coating of fine tannin that tugs at the cheek. There’s a great blending of earth and fruit that makes the Podernovi quite attractive, yet a few years in the cellar should yield an even more balanced wine." Vinous

      "The Poggio San Polo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Podernovi offers great density and textural richness. I would say that this wine is most characterized by the quality of the mouthfeel that wraps smoothly and thickly over the palate. Dark cherry, tobacco, earth, plum and dark fruit add intensity and flavorful substance. The wine's full-bodied approach would match grilled meats or roasts." Robert Parker

      "Lush and fruity, featuring plum, cherry, strawberry and iron aromas and flavors. Bright acidity and dense tannins form the structure as this plays out on the long finish. The excellent youthful balance shows promise for the future." Wine Spectator

      "A dense and layered red with plum, cherry and chocolate character. Full body. Dense and ripe tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Shows layers of fruit and rich tannins. New and exciting wine from here. Try after 2022." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2015 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2015 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Dark red with light reflections. On the nose, this great Riserva shows lots of sweet red cherry, wild berry, Asian herbs and notes of undergrowth. Firm and still very austere on the palate with well-defined fruit and present acidity. The exceptional structure is flanked by a good tannin framework that reinforces the austerity and precision. This Riserva is not an easy-drinking wine, but will only find its full expression after a few years of maturation. All components indicate that it will then be one of the best Brunellos that this exceptionally full-bodied vintage has produced. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, rich ruby garnet. Lush, inviting nose with rich notes of ripe plums, pickled cherries and cloves. Lots of ripe, present fruit on the palate, coupled with good freshness, opens with fine-meshed tannin, salty and long." Falstaff

      "A mix of cherry, plum, leather, rosemary, iron and tobacco flavors ply the sleek profile of this balanced red, which has good grip and a lingering savory aftertaste." Wine Spectator

      "The San Polo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (with 8,000 bottles produced) is a textured wine with hearty fruit and touches of smoked meat and spice. At its core, the wine offers dark fruit, blackberry and ripe plum. The rich fruitiness of the wine cedes to campfire ash, mahogany and furniture wax. These results are sultry and even a bit flashy, with distant background tones of teriyaki and plum sauce." Robert Parker

      "Lovely purity of fruit with ultra fine tannins and depth, finesse and complexity. Black cherries, cedar and some flowers. It's full-bodied with very fine tannins that drive the finish. Give it a year or two to open more, but already so enticing." James Suckling

    About the winemakersSan PoloTuscany | Montalcino
    San Polo

    On the eastern slope of Montalcino lies the road that leads to Castelnuovo dell'Abate, which is located in Val d'San Polo Winery, located in Orca and accessible only via a gravel road. In 2007, Marilisa Allegrini and Leonardo Lo Cascio, the well-known dealer for Italian wines in the USA, had acquired the winery near the hamlet of Podernovi, which is equally convincing for aesthetes and environmentalists. The two winegrowers, who also successfully cultivate Poggio al Tesoro in Bolgheri in Tuscany, are pursuing the ambitious goal of developing the 22-hectare vineyard uncompromisingly into a world-famous winery. That's why they do their utmost to maximize the potential of the terroir.

    The new landowner's wife, who had already gained fame in Veneto - more precisely in Valpolicella, the cradle of the famous Amarone - and whose name is by no means unknown in Italy's wine industry, did not immediately start production, but first tested the soil and clones in detail. She also took a closer look at documentation on vine grafting. Today, outstanding plants thrive in the densely planted vineyard plots cultivated according to near-natural criteria at high altitudes. Half of the 17 hectares of vineyards are registered for Brunello.

    The ultra-modern cellar, completely underground and built according to bio-architecture guidelines, contains barrels of various sizes. The volume of the containers ranges from small barrique barrels to barrels with a capacity of 30 hectolitres. In malolactic fermentation, farmers prefer cement tanks to stainless steel tanks.

    The wines of San Paolo have in the past been featured in many magazines such as "Wine Spectator", "The Wine Advocate" and "Wine Enthusiast" with awards. For example, the Brunello years 2003 to 2007 were regularly rewarded with 90 to 95 points. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The acquisition of the estate by the Allegrini family ... has finally brought to the surface the full potential of these wonderful vineyards, which due to adverse circumstances could not be used by the previous owners."Gambero Rosso
