Poggio San Polo

Intense and bright ruby red garnet highlights, this wine reveals typical aromas of violets and small red berries. There is a distinctive aroma of woodland undergrowth, aromatic wood and a light note of vanilla and preserved fruit, followed by subtle nuances of coffee. The nose is intense, persistent, broad and ethereal. The wine is warm, with a densely-woven and robust texture, while the finish is persistent with roundly- defined tannins. The wine's elegance and harmonious personality allow to pair well with highly-structured cuisine such as red meats and game accompanied by mushrooms and truffles. It is ideal with matured cheeses, such as Parmigiano Reggiano and Tuscan pecorino.

Wine Enthusiast

San Polo has shown very impressive work lately and this velvety rich Brunello pushes its ambitions even further. The bouquet offers a long succession of beautiful aromas including black cherry, vanilla, carob, cola, cinnamon spice and black licorice. There's also a drying mineral note that adds a dusty touch of elegance and sophistication.

Score: 94. —Monica Larner, April 01, 2011.

Wine Advocate

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful, rich Brunello laced with dark cherries, mocha, chocolate, spices, licorice and leather. It shows excellent depth and richness, along with ripe, silky tannins that caress the polished finish. A hint of French oak lingers on the close. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Score: 93. —Antonio Galloni, May 2011.

Wine Spectator

Cinnamon and clove notes mix with cherry and red currant flavors in this red, which starts out smoothly, turning tannic on the astringent finish. Feels more like wood tannins than grape tannins. Best from 2014 through 2025. 400 cases imported.

Score: 90. —Bruce Sanderson, June 30, 2011.
