The Poggio San Polo 2013 Brunello di Montalcino offers bright and sweet cherry fruit that pops out with pretty intensity as soon as you lift the glass to your nose. This wine offers beautiful fruit definition and a snappy personality that sings loud and clear. So many Brunellos can taste flat and evolved, but this wine is jazzy and very lively instead. The wine is fermented in cement vats and later aged in large oak casks and tonneaux for two years. Some 50,000 bottles were made.
This verges on cherry liqueur flavors, along with plum, spice and chocolate notes. Modern in feel, with a direct approach, yet has a firm, dense undertow and a lingering finish. Best from 2020 through 2032. 4,000 cases made.
