The vineyards at San Polo were planted between 1990 and 2000 with the goal of making the highest quality Brunello di Montalcino. Another vineyard owned by the Allegrini family and also visited on our Tuscany tour in September 2017. Rubio is a youthful and fresh red made from Sangiovese Grosso grapes grown in the hillside vineyards of Montalcino. Fermentation in stainless steel follows a brief, but intense, period of maceration. The final bottling retains all of the fresh fruit character while delivering excellent colour and flavour extraction.
Brilliant ruby-red with purple hues, this wine has intense aromas of red cherries, violets and currants, followed by a hint of spice. Well-structured and balanced on the palate, Rubio is easy-going and versatile, but also notable for its intensity and elegance.
Food matches: Pair this wine with antipasti, tapas, pasta dishes with tomato sauces, and grilled sausages.
