Winemaker's Notes

Rubio is a young and fresh 100% Sangiovese. The slightly shorter maceration with the skins, followed by fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel containers and frequent pumpovers, allow for greater juiciness and a lighter body while preserving excellent color and flavor extraction.

Brilliant ruby red with purple hues, this wine has an intense and persistent bouquet filled with fresh aromas of red cherries, violets and currants, followed by subtle spicy notes. Well structured and balanced with good tannin levels, Rubio is quaffable, yet notable for its intensity and elegance. This wine is excellent by the glass and ideal for barbecues. Also try it with prosciutto, salami, pasta dishes with tomato sauce, grilled sausages and meats and cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"San Polo's 2007 Rubio is made from the estate's youngest Sangiovese vines (plus some purchased fruit) in and around the property in Montalcino. This unoaked red offers plenty of varietal character in its cherries, earthiness and tobacco in an easygoing, pleasing style that is sure to find many admirers. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011."

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
