Overview

Classification: Vino Nobile di Montepulciano

We give the Prugnolo Gentile grape our closest attention and care.This characteristic grape of Montepulciano expresses the full potential of a region with an acknowledged gift for viticulture.

The result is our Vino Nobile di Montepulciano – well structured, with longevity and perfumes that are intense but not exaggerated, faithfully expressive of deep, Tuscan roots and the ancient bond between the soil, man and culture.

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varietals

Sangiovese 90%, Canaiolo Nero and Mammolo 10%.

Palate

Poliziano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a structured, long-lived wine, intensely perfumed with great richness of flavour and mouth-feel. The finish is long and fine.

Food Matching

Decant prior to service at around 16-18 degrees Celsius. An ideal accompaniment to roast and grilled meats, game meat casseroles, richly flavoured pasta dishes such as Pappardelle alle Lepre (wide pasta strips with hare ragout), and mature cheeses. Drinking well now, this wine will benefit from up to ten years cellaring.

Winemaking Notes

The varieties are fermented separately in stainless steel vats, with the alcoholic fermentation lasting about 10-18 days, at a miximum temprature of 32 degrees Celcius. The wine is matured for two years in French oak barrels of varying sizes, followed by a period of 6-8 minths in bottle prior to release.

DOC/DOCG

Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC) was the first Italian quality assurance label for wines in 1963, and in common with the French AOC, specifies the geographical area, permitted grape varieties and minimum alcohol level. It may also stipulate the production method, including minimum ageing.

Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) wines must meet all DOC requirements, must be bottled in the region of production, and are subject to a Ministry of Agriculture tasting. Each bottle will carry a numbered seal of approval.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Established in 1961, Poliziano has in the space of forty years moved from the original nucleus of 22 hectares purchased by owner Dr Federico Carletti's father, to 240 hectares, of which 120 are cultivated with DOC and DOCG vineyards.

Federico Carletti is also responsible for the recent leaps forward in terms of quality, especially over the past 10-15 years. Graduating in the late 1970's in Agriculture followed by a few years work experience in Northern Italy, Federico returned to Poliziano, inspired by the challenge presented by a market finally recognising quality rather than just quantity in Italian wines. Federico claims: "I see myself as a farmer, because I am convinced great wines originate in the vineyard."

Less favourably situated vineyards have thus been eliminated with significant replanting of selected clones and rootstocks, in planned planting layouts complemented by specific pruning techniques, forming the major part of Federico's improvements. A newly established winery at Montepulciano Stazione is the latest development. Technically advanced state of the art equipment and carefully chosen oak for maturation, produce the optimum result for the Poliziano wines, made from 100% estate grown fruit.
