Reviews of purchase San Polo, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, 2013
Wine rich ruby-red color.
The taste of wine is incredibly dense and concentrated, soft and elastic, juicy, with a nice sexy ensemble of shades of black fruit, sweet red cherries, rum cake, plum, black pepper, mint, flowers, chocolate milk.
Interesting wine aroma filled tones of blackberry, mahogany and ginseng, hints of spices (cinnamon, allspice, cardamom) and liquorice.
Wine perfectly complement red meat and game, cooked with mushrooms and aged cheeses such as Parmigiano Pedzhano and Tuscan Pecorino.
