Always the ambassador of Allegrini wines in the world, Marilisa Allegrini, the first Italian woman to appear on the cover of Wine Spectator and recently appointed Cavaliere del Lavoro, is the protagonist of a unique story made up of passion and foresight, dedication and respect for the environment. A story that starts from the family business in Valpolicella - Veneto - and arrives in Tuscany in 2001 to carry on right here, in this unique and multi-faceted terroir, the ambitious project of production diversification. A project of which San Polo is the proud spokesperson with its organic vineyards, its certifications, its avant-garde cellar where bio-architecture plays the leading role, but above all with its gaze always turned towards the future. An enthralling story to which is also intertwined the destiny of her daughters Carlotta and Caterina who today, alongside their mother, carry on, with the same spirit of innovation and the same determination, not only an entrepreneurial project, but the values of an ethic based on the greatest family passion transmitted to them, that for the world of wine. Situated on the south-eastern slope of the Montalcino hill, at an altitude of 450 metres, the 22 hectares of the estate, 16 of which are planted with Sangiovese vines, are characterised by a ventilated and dry microclimate, with strong diurnal and seasonal temperature ranges. In the cellar, an admirable example of bio-architecture, conceived to minimise energy expenditure and environmental impact, the grapes are processed with artisanal care to enhance the finesse of the Sangiovese aromas. The essence of San Polo, in fact, is to trace the wines back to the vineyard that generated them, so as to express the concept of terroir to the utmost. Man's intervention wants nothing more than to bring the wine closer to nature, adopting a viticulture that respects the soil, the microclimate and the biodiversity of the place, so that the biological cycle of the vineyard and the pedoclimatic context are in perfect harmony. Concepts of which our two cru Podernovi and Vignavecchia are the true quintessence: two vineyards so close yet so different in terms of exposure, slope and soil characteristics.
