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. It soon became apparent that the investment had been a good one as the soil characteristics ...New York, New Jersey, California, Massanois Imports
The broad shoulders and modern personality of this wine give way to the opulence of brilliant dark cherry, dried blackberry and sweet tobacco layers. A great example of Brunello, showing balance and density upon the finish.
Wine Advocate"The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Paolus is a shapely and opulent wine from an aromatic point of view. The bouquet opens to dark cherry, blackberry, spice, leather and cola. Like many other wines from this vintage, the mouthfeel is lighter and less impactful overall. But it does exhibit the kind of integrated acidity that makes this wine perfect for pasta or meat dishes.

James Suckling"Very ripe aromas of cherries and flowers follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and fresh and stylish finish. A little linear now but will develop nicely in the bottle. Drink or hold." - James Suckling, Feb 2016
