|AOC||ROSSO 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.
Rosso di Montalcino is a wine with its own unique identity and a strong personality. This wine’s style highlights the freshness and integrity of the Sangiovese from this terroir and balances intensity with an immediate appeal.
A clear, bright ruby red. On the nose, aromas of fresh berries and delicate Morello cherry, followed by blackberry, black cherry and hints of vanilla. Dry and elegant on the palate, it has energy and freshness, a satisfying, long finish and soft, well-balanced tannins.
Naturally very well suited to typical Tuscan dishes with bold, distinctive flavours, with mushroom pasta and risotto, pork, grilled meat and medium-mature cheeses.
