"The purity and polish here shows wonderfully the moment you stick your nose in the glass, with complex aromas of plums, berries, cedar and violets. It’s full-bodied and ever so refined with elegant and intense tannins that take you deep into the wine. This is a thoughtful and finely crafted Brunello that needs time to show you its greatness. From organically grown grapes. Try after 2024." James Suckling 98 points Drink 2024-40

A biodynamic and certified-organic wine, the San Polino 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva offers more depth and complexity next to the two wines from 2017 also hitting the market now. These are qualities of the classic 2016 vintage, and they are played out to good effect in this bottle. The bouquet is redolent of ripe cherry, blackberry, spice and earthy tones, but the tannins are less aggressive in this wine. The acidity also feels brighter. 2,666 bottles were made.

A dark bouquet of cherry and plum sauces mixed with clove and grapefruit peels creates a deeply alluring expression as the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva blossoms in the glass. This is pure elegance, rich and pliant, even polished in feel, as masses of mineral- tinged red berries flow across a core of vibrant acidity. The tannins arrive late, mingling with a coating of primary fruit concentration that leaves a classically dry impression, yet one of unrealized potential. The 2016 Riserva is geared for the cellar and sure to make fans of San Polino very happy once it reaches full maturity.
