  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 88

    The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Helichrysum redeems some of the shortcomings of San Polino's base 2009 Brunello. Although the wine feels sticky and chewy in the mouth with an evidently mature quality of fruit, Helichrysum is characteristic of a hot Brunello vintage. You'll recognize tones of jammy fruit, cherry cough drop and sweet maple syrup. Drink: 2016-2020.

    This is crazy wine for the vintage, with incredibly perfumed aromas of cherries and flowers. Full body with fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Stunning. Wine of the vintage. From biodynamically grown grapes.

The rolling hills of Tuscany are home to ancient vines that grew wild long before modern times. Sangiovese is the variety of the region's best-known wines, Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti. In recent years, “Super Tuscans"—blends including non-native Bordeaux varieties—have gained in popularity and acclaim. The region's Mediterranean climate, with its warmer average temperatures, provides ideal conditions for the development of rich, structured, and age-worthy wines.
