|BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO
A lifelong ambassador of Allegrini wines, Marilisa Allegrini was the first Italian woman to appear on the cover of Wine Spectator and was recently named Cavaliere del Lavoro. She is the heroine of a unique story full of passion and foresight, dedication, and respect for the environment. A story that starts with the family business in Valpolicella - Veneto - and her arrival in Tuscany in 2001 to implement the ambitious production diversification project right here in this unique and multi-faceted terroir. San Polo is a proud representative of this project, with its organic vineyards, its certifications, its avant-garde cellar where sustainable architecture rules, and most importantly, with its forward-thinking philosophy. It is a captivating story, also intertwining the fate of her daughters Carlotta and Caterina, who today, alongside their mother, continue this entrepreneurial project with the values, ethics, and same spirit of innovation and determination that was once founded on the family’s great passion for wine.
Podernovi, San Polo new single vineyard Brunello, makes its debut with the extraordinary vintage 2015. Crafted with Sangiovese grapes coming from the homonymous vineyard, among the most beautiful and representatives of Montalcino, Podernovi is an energetic, elegant and deep Brunello.
Ruby red color not excessively deep, with light garnet reflections. On the nose, floral aromas of violet, cyclamen and jasmine, notes of fresh fruit and spicy hints. In the mouth it is well balanced, with a good structure and acidity as well as very smooth tannins, showing overall an excellent persistence.
The elegance and harmonious personality of this new cru wine enables it to pair extremely well with highly-structured cuisine such as red meats and game, as well as with mushrooms and truffles. It is ideal with matured cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano and Tuscan pecorino.
