San Polo Brunello di Montalcino 'Podernovi' 2015

Product description

97 Points - James Suckling    This is a phenomenal red from San Polo with superb depth and intensity with plum, wet earth and black truffle. Full body. Chewy and ripe tannins and a long and flavourful finish. The depth is gorgeous.

95 Points - Wine Spectator    Lush and fruity, featuring plum, cherry, strawberry and iron aromas and flavors. Bright acidity and dense tannins form the structure as this plays out on the long finish. The excellent youthful balance shows promise for the future. Best from 2023 through 2040.

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate    The Poggio San Polo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Podernovi offers great density and textural richness. I would say that this wine is most characterized by the quality of the mouthfeel that wraps smoothly and thickly over the palate. Dark cherry, tobacco, earth, plum and dark fruit add intensity and flavorful substance. The wine's full-bodied approach would match grilled meats or roasts.

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast    Firmly structured, this opens with aromas of underbrush, exotic spice and whiffs of eucalyptus oil. The firm palate evokes black-cherry extract, orange zest, liquorice and tobacco set against assertive, close grained tannins that leave a rather austere, drying finish.

92 Points - Vinous    Full ruby-red. Deep aromas of medicinal dark fruits are lifted by a lovely violet topnote. Full, rich and ripe, with seamless red cherry, blueberry and mineral flavors give a firm edge by a whisper of liquorice and herbs. Finishes with good breadth and very fine tannins. This is excellent.

91 Points - Decanter    Dark morello cherries, hints of jammy wild berries. Deep spicy undertones, great structure, and finesse. Juicy on the palate; spicy and complex. Very intense and multi-layered. Drinking Window 2021 - 2025.
