2007 Poggio San Polo Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1114180 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark San Polo delivers a stellar 2007 Brunello with incredible density, concentration and personality. It starts off soft, smooth and supple until those still-young tannins appear on the close, giving the wine a firm backbone. Black fruit, cherry, rum cake, plum, black pepper and cured meat characterize the bouquet. In all, this is a beautiful ensemble with layers of beauty and freshness. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (5/2012)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous. It may be the very best wine I have ever tasted from San Polo. Sweet red cherries, flowers, mint and spices are woven together beautifully in this juicy, sexy Brunello. The 2007 keeps getting better with time in the glass. Readers looking for a Brunello that will drink well with a minimum of cellaring will find a lot of pleasure here. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2012)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Blueberries, spices, minerals and mint follow through to a full body, with intense, integrated tannins and a long fruity finish. Tight and in reserve. Inner quote mark (1/2011)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A spicy version, sporting cinnamon, allspice, cardamom and licorice aromas and flavors. There's a core of cherry, along with bright acidity and firm tannins. Elegant and forward, with fine length. (BS) Inner quote mark (7/2012)

The last wine of the old regime at San Polo and the best vintage they made. The wine was carefully finished by new winemaker Nicola Biasi whose deft handling has done nothing to dim the gorgeous fruit yet seemed to refine the wine at the same time. For those of barrique Brunello this is a ebullient, supple and drinkable Brunello that will still age well.
Drink from 2012 to 2027
