Tuscany is known for its landscapes, history and artistic legacy. As the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, the region has an incredible art and architecture heritage.
Tuscany is certainly the most famous of all Italian regions for its wines. Sangiovese reigns in all its forms in the vineyards of Chianti but also Montepulciano and Montalcino.
It is also the land of the Super Tuscan, the Bordeaux blend style that laid the foundation of some of the greatest Italian wines.
As a pairing with these wines, Tuscany cuisine is based on simplicity but high quality and certainly topped with Tuscan olive oil, recognized all over the world.
San Polino is about 8 hectares of Sangiovese vineyards which lie in 3 different plots of land: at 450, 350 metres altitude, located at San Polino and to the north of Montalcino.
It was the first farm in Montalcino to obtain Organic certification, in 1994, and pioneered a number of techniques that have now been adopted by a large number of wineries.
The owners, Luigi and Katia, have a holistic attitude to viticulture, believing that they must respect, encourage and restore the biodiversity in the vineyard: the larger the pool of diversity, the greater possibility for a natural pest control and the healthier the grapes. To fertilize the fields, they make their own compost using the stalks of the grape bunches, the pressed grape skins, all the green cuttings, from grass to pruning and animal dung. They plant grasses and beans to add nitrogen and nutrients to the soil.
