This property, situated in the eastern part of Montalcino, was purchased by Marilisa Allegrini in 2006. Marilisa has continued to invest heavily in the estate, and brought in winemaker Riccardo Fratton (another student of Professor Roberto Ferrarini) to work alongside consultant Luca D’Attoma to build upon Poggio San Polo’s already considerable reputation and quality.
The estate has 16 hectares of vineyard and produces wines that are classic in style, but with a bit more weight than would be found to the north of the zone. Their Rosso is delicious, showing just how good the wines now are from this fine estate, while the San Polo Brunello is a fine example of the modern style – rich and cedary with fine-grained tannins and excellent length.
Bright and glossy ruby red in colour. On the nose, aromas of fresh berries, morello cherry and blackberries are complemented by a hint of vanilla spice. A fragrant, intense wine with smooth, finely-balanced tannins and a persistent, aromatic finish
