San Polo Mezzopane Sant Antimo 2005

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Pretty aromas of flowers, berries and sandalwood follow through to a medium-to-full body, with a slightly bitter wood character and good acidity. Needs time to come together. Merlot and Sangiovese. Best after 2009. 1,400 cases made. -JS The 2005 Mezzopane is 65% Merlot and 35% Sangiovese from vineyards in the Sant'Antimo appellation, just outside the Brunello production zone. The wine reveals terrific balance and length in its jammy blue and black fruits, with pretty notes of spices that are woven throughout. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012.

The concept underpinning San Polo: to maximize the intrinsic potential of the terroir, make the quest for quality a priority and create an ethical and responsible context where man’s labours and the natural environment are integrated in a harmonious and constructive whole.   Our goal was to transform the San Polo Estate into a premium quality winery. The year 2007 marked the beginning of a new era for San Polo: a prestigious, historic appellation was accompanied by an entrepreneurial approach and openness to multiple business opportunities. Subsequently, the importance of an eco-friendly approach was understood and developed, leading to a steadfast commitment to sustainability, which is now the hallmark of the Estate and pervades and informs all its practices and operations.   San Polo is situated in Podernovi, on the southern slope of Montalcino. The valley is called Sant’ Antimo and there too, almost at touching distance, stands Mount Amiata. The locals call this area a ‘Mezzopane’, meaning that to admire the beautiful view is to ‘take one’s fill’, like food for the soul. The windows, knolls and vantage points of the Estate’s two farmhouses look out over the breath-taking Tuscan landscape of the Old Masters. And finally, San Polo’s modern and innovative wine-making cellar, so cutting-edge as to have become synonymous with the Company itself. Read less
