Why do we love this wine?

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. This wine reinforces the fantastic find we had in our first import of this wine in 2012. A long, cool ferment followed by ageing in old Slavonian oak for almost three years. The fruit is incredibly coiled and layered, but also has a rustic, indigenous character that places its origins unmistakably in Tuscany. Full, meaty, powerful. Fresh and mouth-coating tannins, and all the length you could dream of. This wine only comes in once a year, and it’s very limited. So don’t spend too much time daydreaming.

And if you were wondering (I was),Helichrysum italicum is a small silver-leafed herb with golden yellow, ball-shaped blossoms. Its oil is sought after for its many anti-aging properties, and is also known as the ‘Immortal Flower’. It grows wild in this elevated Brunello vineyard, and maybe some of its anti-aging properties rub off on this wine. A timeless classic. 


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!

Winemakers: Katia Nussbaum & Gigi Fabbro

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.”
