Why do we love this wine?

There’s a reason this was one of the only international wines at Justin’s wedding (CEO & Co-founder at the ‘fo). Come to think of it, the only one. The wine for when Barolo doesn’t make the cut. San Polino is the first biodynamic estate in Brunello, and they’re a subscriber to the saying, ‘wine is made in the vineyard’. It shows. A tiny producer, they make their organic (biodynamic practices) red in old Slavonian oak, and age it at least a couple of years. It’s brilliant, if still a little young. Brooding, but fresh, with black and blue fruits galore, tied down by red cherry-like acidity and fine, strapping tannins. Yet, there’s a milk chocolate ease to it, a coffee bean-like energy, a raspberry-like simplicity. This simplicity belies the layers; polished yes, but complex and oozing potential. Long, perfumed, youthful. Age, decant. Love it long time.

This wine is part of our Women in Wine collection. We are committed to ALWAYS having wines available that are made by women. We already support so many women in the industry but we want to make this much more transparent and visible for our mofos. We want to make a real and lasting impact in an industry that is sadly still dominated by men. And this is the first step. Here’s to our Women in Wine!

San Polino is owned and run by Londoner Katia Nussbaum and Luigi (Gigi) Fabbro from Friuli. San Polino was Montalcino’s first certified organic estate and is now run biodynamically. “We tend to make the wines first and think about how to sell them later,” says Katia. Decanter says: “The wines are joyful. They have depth and power and a wonderfully expressive complexity.”
