Description

100% Sangiovese There is a small 'nirvana' northwest of Montalcino, where Luigi Fabbro and Katia Nuassbaum founded San Polino nearly 30 years ago. Using Luigi's scientific experience of mapping the Amazon rainforest they decided to try their hands at "creating wines as complete reflections of the biodiversity of their terroir" Katia explains. This tiny estate of only 4 hectares now produces luscious and balanced wines farmed bio-dynamically. Bright violet to garnet with lively reflections. An opulent nose of blackcurrent, blackberry, black cherry, fig and sun-baked earth and minerality of sedimentary saline rocks, in the mouth bright and lively, zesty and full with medium finish. Not as full bodied as the Brunello's this is ideal with salami, medium to ripe cheeses, as well as red meat. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Organic and biodynamic
