San Polino, Brunello Di Montalcino, DOCG Organic
Succulent, with soft tannins and a zestful acidity. Rich plum and cherry character throughout, and not overly dry. On the nose you find blackberry, blackcurrant and loamy soil, the mouth gives a long, smooth finish.
Organic and biodynamic production in north-east Montalcino. Well managed thick skinned grapes, and 5 years in oak, imparts plenty of colour and structure.
Harvested early in October, there is a cold 3-day maceration, followed by a spontaneous fermentation on native yeasts in 35hl tronic oak barrels, 45 day maceration in total then the skins are pressed, followed by 1 month spontaneous malolactic fermentation. 20 days lees ageing. To finish the wine it spends 5 years ageing in large oak casks before bottling by hand in the winery.
