2018 Poggio San Polo Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Tuscany, Italy (750ml)
In the glass, this Brunello has an intense ruby red colour with garnet hues. The typical aromas of violets and red berries are followed by hints of vanilla, cedar and coffee. On the palate, it is full-bodied and warm with a densely-woven texture and robust tannins, while the finish is persistent and rounded.
Aromas of sour plums, cherry stones, bark and iodine, with some dried herbs. So fresh, tangy and flavorful, with bright berry fruit and savory moss notes. Fine and integrated tannins. Medium body. All about balance. From organically grown grapes.

A certified organic wine, the 2018 Brunello di Montalcino display a savory character that accompanies the wine from start to finish over the palate and then some. There is a core of black fruit, but the real takeaway is that spicy contour of dark chestnut husk, acacia honey, tilled earth and toasted rosemary that fills the balloon of your glass. This Brunello finishes on a tart note and shows tannins that could use a few extra years to soften.
