Climate trend

The 2019 vintage turned out to be a patchy and inconsistent year from beginning to end, starting with early growth and ending with a late harvest. Due to an unusual winter that was harsh at the beginning and mild towards the end, budding was quite early, while the initial vegetative growth was slow due to the soil’s scarce water reserves. In the month of May, abundant rainfall and below-average temperatures slowed down growth, cancelling out the initial vegetative advance, and thereby accumulating a delay of about 2 weeks compared with the average season. The beginning of June coincided with the beginning of summer, with clear weather and high temperatures continuing each day until August which was marked by cooler temperatures and some rain that was useful for replenishing the land’s water reserves. This uneven trend continued until the harvest, which turned out to be one of the latest in recent years.

Wine Enthusiast

“Underbrush, eucalyptus and forest berry aromas mingle with whiffs of toasted nut and blue flower. Firm but elegantly structured, the linear palate features dried cherry, star anise and ground clove alongside tight, fine-grained tannins that leave an assertive close.” - Kerin O’Keefe

Wine Advocate

Made with certified-organic fruit, the San Polo 2019 Rosso di Montalcino is light and silky with easy aromas of forest berry, wet stone and dried violet. The aromas are subtle and pure, and these are followed up with good power at the back, making it an ideal partner to a pasta dish with cream, peas and mushrooms. 43,600 bottles were produced.

Decanter World Wine Awards

Toasted notes and tea leaves, wet leaves, sour cherry and a touch of tobacco. Seductive and balanced on the palate.
