Winemaker Notes

A great modern red, to which we gave the name Le Stanze, the title of an eminent work by the poet Angelo Ambrogini, nicknamed “Il Poliziano”. Obtained from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Le Stanze is a classic “Bordeaux” blend, conceived in Tuscany which appeals also to international palates, emphasizing the value of the territory of Montepulciano and its potential in the production of great wines for aging.

Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
This shows blueberries and blackberries with some mint undertones. Medium to full body and chewy tannins. Lots of focused and delicious dark fruit here. Try in 2020.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Le Stanze del Poliziano is Cabernet Sauvignon with a small component of Merlot blended in for extra softness. This is a well-assembled wine that shows careful precision and focus, while keeping its full-bodied appeal and concentrated richness in check. The wine opens to dark blackberry and plum with some savory spice, cedar wood and toasted mahogany. Le Stanze is ripe, savory and ready for a romantic evening by the fire as the snowflakes fall beyond a foggy window pane.

V 94

The 2016 Le Stanze del Poliziano (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot) is filled with brambly dark fruit, leather, earthiness, sage, menthol and licorice. Bold and quite powerful, the 2016 packs a serious punch. I would give it a year or two to come together, as the fruit and tannin are imposing. This is another impressive showing from Poliziano.

Poliziano Poliziano Estate Winery Image

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.”

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
