About Molino Sant'Antimo
In the early 1980s Carlo Vittori, already a well-known and experienced winemaker bought his first piece of land to the south of Montalcino close to the hamlet of Castelnuovo dell’Abate.
At the time Carlo Vittori was quite a pioneer because the land in this area was more or less abandoned and was farmed by just a few families who cultivated grapes and olives in the tradition of their ancestors.

Wine Advocate"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Paolus is a tight and streamlined expression of Sangiovese with ethereal tones of spice, licorice, dried cherry, root beer, rosemary oil and crushed mineral. This vintage ultimately delivers much more complexity than the 2009 vintage that proceeds it. In fact, this wine represents a big jump forward in quality. This wine will appeal to lovers of traditional Bunello, wines that offer more in terms of a vertical delivery instead of a horizontal, frontal approach. This is a wine you can really get into: Nice job." - Monica Larner, Jan 2015
Wine Enthusiast"Earthy aromas of game, leather, tilled soil and eucalyptus lead the nose. The concentrated palate shows some muscle, delivering ripe wild cherry, crushed raspberry, mocha, licorice and tobacco along with assertive but fine-grained tannins. Hold for complexity. Drink 2018–2028." - Kerin O'Keefe, May 2015
James Suckling"Lots of dried berry and cherry character to this red. Full body, chewy tannins and a tangy finish. Slightly dusty, almost gritty tannins. Better in 2017." - James Suckling, Jan 2015
