Wine Advocate 90
You can see from the Poggio San Polo 2012 Brunello di Montalcino that this vintage produced wines of gorgeous color intensity and appearance. It shows a saturated ruby color with garnet highlights that is very characteristic of Sangiovese from this warm growing season. This expression is aged in large barrel and tonneaux for two years. The bouquet delivers dark fruit aromas, leather and spice. However, the mouthfeel takes a simple and more direct approach with less overall depth and complexity.

In an effort to employ environmentally sound and sustainable agriculture, natural compost and nitrogen-rich plants have replaced the chemical treatments in the San Polo vineyards. Picturesque olive groves and a magnificent farmhouse enrich the property with genuine Tuscan charm, while the modern, underground winery and cellar provide the best environment and technology for state-of-the-art winemaking.
San Polo is a beautiful estate located in the southeastern part of Montalcino at 1,300 feet above sea level overlooking the Sant'Antimo Valley and Mount Amiata. It comprises 52 acres, 40 of which are dedicated to vines. Twenty acres are currently producing Brunello di Montalcino, while the rest are dedicated to Rosso di Montalcino and IGT wines. The vineyards at San Polo were planted between 1990 and 2000 and the first wines were produced in 1997. All vineyards have been planted at high density and are sustainably farmed.
