Poggio San Polo

The concept underpinning San Polo: to maximize the intrinsic potential of the terroir, make the quest for quality a priority and create an ethical and responsible context where man’s labours and the natural environment are integrated in a harmonious and constructive whole.
 
Our goal was to transform the San Polo Estate into a premium quality winery. The year 2007 marked the beginning of a new era for San Polo: a prestigious, historic appellation was accompanied by an entrepreneurial approach and openness to multiple business opportunities. Subsequently, the importance of an eco-friendly approach was understood and developed, leading to a steadfast commitment to sustainability, which is now the hallmark of the Estate and pervades and informs all its practices and operations.
 
San Polo is situated in Podernovi, on the southern slope of Montalcino. The valley is called Sant’ Antimo and there too, almost at touching distance, stands Mount Amiata. The locals call this area Read more »

  • When I first became interested in wine I used to get Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino mixed up, never mind having difficulty pronouncing them. A few years down the line I’d sorted it; both are from the Tuscan town of Montalcino in Central Italy, from the same grape variety, and come in a similar shaped bottle. Or had I? A recent vi...

Theres a touch of vanilla here along with some blueber... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky and rich, slightly spicy with deep fruit flavors. There's a coffee-like taste in the finish which suggests some underripe fruit, but would be good with peppery food. Read More

  • Poggio San Polo Rubio Sangiovese Toscana IGT 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Beautiful ruby and violet hues...a bit of gym socks (aka reduction) and dirt on the nose with flecks of plump cherry and undertones of floral funkiness...a soft (yet still funky) palate with a mild finish. Read More
