Overview

Classification: Chianti DOCG, Tuscany, Italy

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.

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.
