There’s wonderful polish and focus to the vibrant nose here, which frames sour cherries, raspberries, fruit tea and darker, earthier elements.

Medium-to full-bodied and beautifully pure and inviting, this is a dialed-in Brunello with sweeping acidity and finely chiseled tannins. Drink from 2021.

This beefy red is less forthcoming than many of its peers, featuring a core of pure, fresh cherry flavors. Earth and leafy tobacco elements emerge as this unfolds on the lingering finish. Shows fine balance and energy...   This beefy red is less forthcoming than many of its peers, featuring a core of pure, fresh cherry flavors. Earth and leafy tobacco elements emerge as this unfolds on the lingering finish. Shows fine balance and energy overall. Best from 2024 through 2042. — B.S.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October 2020
With vineyards on the Castelnuovo dell'Abate side of the appellation, this wine reflects the warm vintage and the slightly wild characteristics of fruit from the southern half of the appellation.

The San Giorgio 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Ugolforte is a robust and generous wine, with contemporary touches of smoke and spice that add to its aromatic intensity and complexity. There is plenty of ripe, dark and concentrated fruit here, and that's ultimately what powers this hearty Brunello. The tannins show good integration too. - Monica Larner

While Tenuta San Giorgio is close to Poggio di Sotto and under the same ownership, the two offer distinct expressions. This sees 50% new barriques for the first year, before being transferred into large Slavonian oak...   While Tenuta San Giorgio is close to Poggio di Sotto and under the same ownership, the two offer distinct expressions. This sees 50% new barriques for the first year, before being transferred into large Slavonian oak casks for an additional two years. It is decidedly cedary and balsamic with rosemary, oregano and mint. Tannins are assertive and a tad rustic but there is enough tangy fruit padding out the core.
