Overview of the Wine
Poliziano is located on the slopes below Montepulciano near the village of Gracciano. On these ridges, at the best altitudes and positions, are the vineyards of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The Poliziano Estate was founded in 1961 when Federico Carletti's father, Dino, purchased 55 acres. Today it consists of over 500 acres.

After taking his degree in agriculture, Federico Carletti worked in northern Italy. In 1980 he returned to Tuscany and began working full time on his father's estate. In the past two decades, Federico has created some of the finest wines in this top quality wine-producing area. Federico chose the name "Poliziano" because he loved the work of a renowned native poet, Angelo Ambrogini. Angelo was known as Il Poliziano, because he came from Montepulciano. Angelo's portrait hangs in the tasting room in the center of the estate. Some of Poliziano's wines, such as Le Stanze, were named after the poet.

Federico thinks of himself "as a farmer", because he is "convinced that fine wines originate in the vineyard. Selected clones, planting layouts, rootstock, pruning methods and training systems are chosen with the sole object of ensuring the quality of the grapes. This is the starting point for my wines: they are made only from grapes grown on the estate, respecting their original vintage and the typicality of the area they come from.”

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
To the Prugnolo Gentile grapes, which characterize the Montepulciano area, Poliziano dedicates the most attentive care because they express the full potential of a territory with a rich wine history. The result is our Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, structured, enduring, with intense aromas that faithfully represent its Tuscan origins and the ancient bond between land, man, and culture.

The aromas are those of Sangiovese, trustfully present both in the nose and palate. These include the unmistakable red amarena and plum, juicy and indulgent, and tertiary scents which complete and enrich, like Mediterranean scrub and black pepper.

93 Points - James Suckling
Aromas of plums, orange peel and fresh flowers follow through to a medium body, with very crisp acidity and fine yet dusty tannins with a succulent and fresh finish. Drink or hold.

90 Points - Wine Spectator 
A dense, tightly wound version, displaying cherry and berry fruit, earth and underbrush flavors wrapped in a grip of dusty tannins. Gains fruit, allowing the vibrant acidity to focus and extend the finish. Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo and Merlot.
