Brunello di Montalcino Helichrysum San Polino 2015 (750ML)
94+ Points, Ian D'Agata, Vinous:"Full ruby-red. Aromas of cherry nectar, blackberry, licorice and minerals. Juicy and tightly wound but essentially pliant, with an austere quality to the youthfully chewy black and red fruit and licorice flavors complicated by fresh herbs. Partly barrel fermented, this has noteworthy depth but is still a baby today that needs plenty of cellaring. Finishes long." 04/20.
97 points, James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com: "Ripe boysenberries, tar, chestnuts, orange peel, dried cherries and tobacco. There's a beautiful interplay between the more subtle, citrus notes and darker red fruit, and nothing's out of kilt to the ripeness. Lots of powerful tannins take the full-bodied palate by storm, coating the mouth in layers of intense but fragrant red fruit and steamrolling this Brunello to a long, chewy conclusion. This is a contrastive wine ,built on the foundation of an intricate, wild tannin backbone, but framed in a vibrant and transparent package" 10/19
95 Points, Michaela Morris, Decanter: "Helichrysum is crafted from San Polino's high-altitude vineyard in the southeast. With views towards Monte Amiata, it receives winds from the Sahara. The summer days are hot, giving mature sweet fruit with lots of structure, while the nights cool down substantially, helping to preserve heady perfumes. This is replete with fragrant florals, chamomile, thyme and fennel. It's quite brooding on the palate, the dense fruit framed by terracotta-like tannins. It boasts a long, succulent and saline finish." 2/20
International Wine Reviews
97 Points, Raffaele Vecchione, International Wine Report: "The 'Helichrysum' Brunello di Montalcino from San Polino is fabulous effort that offers wonderful characteristics of black plums, blackberries, roasted coffee beans, ripe cherries and toasted hazelnuts. Beautiful tension, while remaining well-extracted and voluminous. On the palate this is full-bodied, with extremely ripe tannins thanks to the important vineyard work and a concentrated and compact finish that take this to another level. Muscular and high-impact. Excellent today, but should start to hit its stride in another year or two." 03/20
