The concept underpinning San Polo is 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 labour and the natural environment are integrated in a harmonious and constructive whole.
Their goal was to transform the San Polo Estate into a premium quality winery. 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 a ‘Mezzopane’, meaning that to admire the beautiful view is to ‘take one’s fill’, like food for the soul. The windows, knolls and vantage points of the Estate’s two farmhouses look out over the breathtaking Tuscan landscape of the Old Masters. And finally, San Polo’s modern and innovative wine-making cellar, so cutting-edge as to have become synonymous with the Company itself.
