Wine Notes

There is a small ‘nirvana’ northwest of Montalcino, where Luigi Fabbro and Katia Nuassbaum founded San Polino nearly 30 years ago.

Using Luigi’s scientific experience of mapping the Amazon rainforest they decided to try their hands at “creating wines as complete reflections of the biodiversity of their terroir” Katia explains. This tiny estate of only 4 hectares now produces luscious and balanced wines farmed bio-dynamically by this energetic couple who, it is clear, pour all their heart and energies into these sublime wines. Praised by critics and peers they have been described as having “an incredible clarity and pureness of fruit that is unequalled in the region”.

Dark ruby to garnet with terracotta on the rim, the nose is fruity and full, with notes of blackcurrant, violet, a small hint of rose petal, forest floor, and spices. The mouth is dry, full-bodied, corpulent, thick and juicy, with structured ripe tannins and balanced acidity, long, persistent finish.
