Poggio San Polo Rosso di Montalcino Tuscany

€32.95
 
The Rosso has a bright and glossy ruby red colour. On the nose, it has aromas of fresh berries, Morello cherry, and blackberries that are complemented by a hint of vanilla spice. This is a fragrant, intense wine with smooth, finely-balanced tannins and a persistent, aromatic finish.

Description

This property was purchased by Marilisa Allegrini in 2006. Marilisa has continued to invest heavily in the estate, and this investment is now evident in the ever-increasing quality of the wines. Situated in the eastern part of Montalcino, this estate covers 22 hectares of which 16 are under vine and produces wines that are classic in style, but with a bit more weight than would be found to the north of the zone. The grapes for this Rosso came from three hectares of vineyards planted between 1990 and 2000. They are situated at an altitude of 450 meters above sea level, facing south-southeast on chalky clay soils. The vines are spur-cordon trained and planted at a density of 7,000 vines per hectare. Yields are on average 49 hectolitres per hectare. The Rosso has a bright and glossy ruby red colour. On the nose, it has aromas of fresh berries, Morello cherry, and blackberries that are complemented by a hint of vanilla spice. This is a fragrant, intense wine with smooth, finely-balanced tannins and a persistent, aromatic finish.
