San Polo Rosso Di Montalcino

San Polo Rosso Di Montalcino

This property was purchased by Marilisa Allegrini in 2006. Marilisa has continued to invest heavily in the estate, and this investment is now evident in the ever-increasing quality of the wines. Situated in the eastern part of Montalcino, this estate covers 22 hectares of which 16 are under vine, and produces wines that are classic in style, but with a bit more weight than is found in wines made to the north of the zone. The winery has been certified by the respected Casa Clima organisation as sustainable since 2013 and all wines are organically certified from 2017 vintage, and vegan certified from 2019 vintage.

Vineyards

The grapes for this Rosso di Montalcino came from three hectares of vineyard planted between 1990 and 2000. The vineyards are situated at an altitude of 450 metres above sea level, facing south and south-east, with chalky clay soils. The vines are spur-cordon trained and planted at a density of 7,000 vines per hectare. Yields are on average 49 hectolitres per hectare.

Vinification

The grapes were hand picked. After careful selection of the bunches, gentle pressing followed and then fermentation took place in concrete tanks, with maceration on the skins lasting around 14-16 days at 28-30°C. The wine was then aged for 12 months in lightly-toasted, second-use French oak barriques (Allier) followed by a month of bottle ageing before release.

Tasting Notes

The Rosso is bright ruby red in colour. On the nose, it has aromas of fresh berries, Morello cherry and blackberries that are complemented by a hint of vanilla spice. This is a fragrant, intense wine with smooth, finely-balanced tannins and a persistent, aromatic finish.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
