94 points Wine Enthusiast: "this opens with classic Sangiovese aromas of woodland berry, fragrant blue flower, baking spice, new leather and an earthy whiff of forest floor. Reflecting the nose, the polished palate offers juicy wild cherry, raspberry compote and star anise accompanied by bright acidity and taut but polished tannins."

Terroir
Lush field on the slopes of Montalcino, with strong clay and marl elements. Good ventilation and sun exposure ensures optimal ripeness each year.

Weather
A mild and rather wet winter was followed by an early, though slightly cool, spring. The summer was characterized by unusually high rainfalls and low temperatures, which delayed the ripening process. Late summer, however, saw an increase in temperatures, and San Polino avoided the last summer rains. Luck with the weather and rigorous selections of the grapes meant that we brought in an unexpectedly good harvest, even in this difficult year.
