Intense ruby-red in color with garnet hues, San Polo Brunello offers classic aromas of violets, small red berries, and more subtle notes of coffee and tobacco. It is warm and full-bodied on the palate, with ripe, firm tannins balanced by a lively acidity, and the flavors unfold into a long, well-rounded finish. It is an excellent accompaniment to roasted meats, wild fowl, grilled filet mignon, or mature cheeses such as parmigiano reggiano and Tuscan pecorino.
