16 hectares of Sangiovese are worked by the team at this superb, yet relatively unknown, estate which counts some of the highest plots in all of Tuscany. The fine wine world seems to be on something of a roll with regards to appreciating the various benefits of high altitude vineyards, and San Polo is another example of why this terroir is so special. Elegance and ethereal fragrance are very much to the forefront of this Brunello, with perhaps a touch more weight and richly rounded body to the wine than one might find from labels located in the North of the appellation.

The sites from which this Brunello is sourced are South or Southwest facing, ensuring that despite their lofty situation they achieve ripeness without excessive sugar. Relatively classic in style – music to the ears of true Brunello devotees – San Polo is aged in a combination of new and used 500 litre French Oak barrels. Firm but not invasive wood, the oak is a mere seasoning to the exceptionally pure and focused fruit.

About Poggio San Polo

The ancient estate of San Polo, located in the Eastern extremities of the breath-takingly beautiful Montalcino hills, was purchased by renowned Amarone producer Marilisa Allegri in 2006. Recognising the potential of his newly purchased Tuscan sites, Allegri injected significant investment into the property – every penny of which is bearing fruit.
