A wonderfully fresh expression of Brunello with orange rind, citrus and red cherries; but there’s also an overlay of riper, roasted herbs and incense. Medium to full body, ripe but very structured tannins and a very flavorful palate with lots of dried nutmeg and spice undertones. Everything is where it should be, in balance.
Katia Nussbaum and Luigi Fabbro bottle separate Brunellos from their two distinct sites. This hails from a flat plot at 300 metres in the northeast. With a stream running close to the vineyard, the sandy clay soil retains moisture even in the heat of summer. Very pure and precise aromas of savoury herbs, botanical oils and blood orange peel are followed by a palate charged with ripe fruit as well as backbone - the tannins are textured and clingy. (MM)
Light ruby-red. Delicately spicy red- and blackcurrant aromas are complemented by licorice and smoky minerals. Round and smooth, with medium-weight red fruit flavors showing good concentration, with velvety tannins framing the wine. Finishes on a long, savory note. Lovely balance here. (ID)
An 8,000-bottle release, the San Polino 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a medley of aromas that are a little offbeat at times, with crushed aspirin and cherry cough drop. You get some ripe fruit but not in the traditional sense, because there are no jammy notes. Instead, you get a lot of candied aromas. The candied cherry is lifted and bright, ceding to light tones of toasted almond and tilled earth. Give the wine a little extra time in the glass, and it comes together with good focus and sharpness.

Red-berry, crushed mint, new leather and forest-floor aromas slowly take shape on this full-bodied red. The assertive palate offers steeped prune, ground clove, powdered sage and green tea set against grainy tannins that leave an astringent finish. (KO)
Mid to deep ruby. A nose that is still a little closed on the fruit but with lots of interest. Minerally notes. Slow to reveal itself on the palate, too. At this stage more savoury than fruity, but it is brooding and the fruit needs time to come out. Sensationally balanced. 17.5+/20 points (WS)
