Warm blackberry aromas carry through to the warm dry palate. There's a hint of black olive on the finish -- the part of this wine I like the most. Read more

Good tart fruit body, kind of generic, but some interesting hints of honeydew, chocolate, red pepper, and bananas. Read more

Thick syrupy nose of espresso beans and licorice. Very fruity - this is really an $11 wine? Its incredibly fruity, to the point of tar and licorice. Firm tannins and a little tartness of the finish help keep it balanced, but overall its a bomb to me - too meaty, laced with coffee and licorice.

    Spicy gamey nose, grainy slightly medicinal flavor with a bit of a chemical edge and a dry bitter finish.


    Winemaker's Notes:

    This property was bought and established by Silvia Fertonani and her husband Mario Calzolari. With the 1999 vintage, the rising star of Poggio San Polo established itself brightly in Montalcino’s firmament and this was confirmed with the double Gold Medal for the estate at the 2004 International Wine Challenge (1999 Brunello and 2001 Mezzo Pane). In addition, the 1999 Brunello won the Sangiovese trophy. Following a rift in the family, the estate was put up for sale and bought by Marilisa Allegrini of Verona in 2006. She is planning to invest heavily in the wines and has brought in winemaker Nicolo Biasi to build on the already impressive levels of quality. The wine is deep ruby-red in colour, with ripe, attractive perfumes of blackberries and cherries with a hint of spiced plums. Good depth on the palate with ripe fruit and gentle tannins. It combines good structure with an attractive youthful freshness.
