San Polo Rubio 2021
San Polo Rubio
Region: Tuscany, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
Notes: Certified organic, vegan, vegetarian
Rubio is a brilliant ruby red in colour with purple hues. The intense nose bursts with aromas of cherry, blackcurrant and violet, with subtle notes of spice. On the palate, silky tannins balance beautifully with fruit-driven flavours of cherry and berries, typical of the variety. The finish is long and elegant.
Grapes for Rubio come from hillside vineyards in the Montalcino area, at altitudes between 300-450 metres above sea level which provides some relief from the hotter summer temperatures that can hit the region. The vineyards face south which means they benefit from good levels of sunshine. Soils here are rich in calcium and clay.
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 is found in wines made to the north of the zone. The winery has been certified by the respected Casa Clima organisation as sustainable since 2013 and all wines are organically certified from 2017 vintage
