After Rosso di Montalcino, Vignavecchia 2018 also receives an important recognition which, Riccardo Fratton, oenologist from San Polo, comments as follows: "The two awarded wines, Rosso di Montalcino and Brunello Vignavecchia, are two different interpretations of Sangiovese both of them united by the capacity to represent and express the great terroir of San Polo. Recognitions like this make us appreciate even more the commitment and passion we put into our work every day. It's a great emotion and a stimulus to continue with enthusiasm and satisfaction."
"Seeing the potential of San Polo expressed in these results makes us appreciate even more the commitment and passion we put into our work every day and gives us even more drive and enthusiasm to achieve ever better and higher results. These are processes that they require a lot of commitment, dedication and precision and allow us to bring to the table a wine that tells the whole world about the most authentic Tuscany" comments Cavaliere Marilisa Allegrini, owner of the estate.
The wonderful awards received in recent days are not a goal for San Polo but a stimulus and confirmation of the qualitative path that we embrace every day.
