San Polino Helichrysum Brunello di Montalcino 2016
Red wine

San Polino, Helichrysum 2016

RRP £46.50

So many beautiful elements are present, but this is still evolving. Notes of crushed rose, ripe cherry, fresh earth, herbs and black pepper. Concentrated but not heavy, with a tangy, chalky finish. I love the clear distinction between a beginning, middle and end. It has a weightless quality, and a distinctive Sangiovese angularity and identity.
