Classification: Chianti DOCG
A well balanced, elegant wine with pungent bouquet which is light and fragrant in youth, acquiring depth and personality over time (1-2 years). The fresh notes of apples and exotic fruit evolve to nuances of dried fruits and hay. The palate is full, very mellow and round, with good body and acid balance and immediate appeal.

Poliziano Chianti is a fresh, fruity wine with wonderful vinosity and suppleness, making it ideal for early drinking.
Serve at around 16-18 degrees Celsius. A very drinkable and versatile Chianti, ideal to accompany antipasto, pasta dishes, risotto and pizza. Try it with char-grilled peppers and melanzane (eggplant), roast rabbit or chicken, or Scarmorza (fresh Tuscan cheese) grilled on an open fire.
Enjoy now and over the coming 3 years.
The varieties are fermented separately in stainless steel vats, with the alcoholic fermentation lasting about 7-10 days. The wine remains in stainless steel until bottling, in March of the year following harvest.
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.
