Winemaker Notes

The Prugnolo Gentile grape gets the winery's 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 the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano – well structured, with longevity and aromatics that are intense but not exaggerated, faithfully expressive of deep, Tuscan roots and the ancient bond between the soil, man and culture.

Blend: 85% Prugnolo Gentile, 15% Colorino, Canaiolo, and Merlot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 93
Decanter
The most refined of Vino Nobiles; a classic. A nose of unsuspected elegance and complexity; iris, fresh plum, herbs and a hint of linseed. Big, mouthfilling, fresh and tangy on the palate, with great distribution of tannins and vigorous, earthy finish. Needs time to open out, but has huge potential.
JS 91
James Suckling
This VN shows lovely balance and polish with ultra-fine tannins and blueberry character. Hints of walnuts. Full and silky textured. Better in 2014.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
This red starts out smooth, evoking black cherry, plum and tobacco flavors. The dense tannins emerge midpalate and elements of new oak grace the finish, leaving accents of vanilla and toast. A harmonious wine. Drink now through 2020.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Black cherry and mushroom scents place this firmly in Tuscany, while the richness, smooth integration and clean lines give it an international feel. The wine’s acidity has a tomato-like tartness that would clean up after braised boar.

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.”

This significant Tuscan village—not to be confused with the red grape of the same name widely grown in Abruzzo and the Marche regions—was home to one of the first four Italian DOCGs granted in 1980.

Based on the Sangiovese grape (here called Prognolo Gentile), the village’s prized wine called Vino Nobile di Montepulciano ranks stylistically in between Chianti Classico, for its finesse, and Brunello di Montalcino for its power. With a deep ruby color, heavy concentration and a firm structure given by the village's heavy, cool clay soils, most Vino Nobile di Montepulciano will demand some bottle age.
