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.
Sangiovese, Montalcino’s most important grape variety, is fermented and aged exclusively in stainless steel tanks, giving life to a wine with great freshness and versatility. Deep ruby red in colour, Rubio is modern and elegant and conveys the lively fragrances and colours of an untouched natural environment.
It is a bright ruby red wine with violet hues. It is intensely fruity, with notes of cherry, blackcurrant, blackberry, and violet, followed by delicate and pleasant herbal hints. On the palate, it is well-structured, dry, with soft tannins and a great aromatic persistence.
Rubio is a fresh and pleasant wine that pairs well with charcuterie boards and pasta dishes with traditional Italian sauces. It is excellent when accompanied by medium-aged cheeses, such as the famous Tuscan pecorino. It is delightful for a barbecue with friends.
