Winemaker Notes

#10 wine in VinePair's Top 50 of 2018

Poliziano give the Prugnolo Gentile grape their 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 perfumes 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
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Fragrant woodland berry, blue flower and cake spice aromas mingle with a balsamic menthol note. The concentrated but almost weightless palate offers juicy raspberry, fleshy black cherry, espresso and star anise alongside polished supple tannins.
Editors' Choice
JS 92
James Suckling

Blackberry, walnut and dried-flower aromas follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a rich finish. Needs two or three years to soften.


RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This wine should be hitting the market now. The 2015 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a truly generous Tuscan red with a bright and cherry-driven bouquet. Some 250,000 bottles were produced, and this is the average for this wine. The blend is 85% Sangiovese with 15% Canaiolo and Merlot. Blending is executed in cement tanks, and the oak influences are downplayed. This is a deep, plush, soft and rich expression overall.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Shy in aroma, this is effusive on the palate, exuding black cherry, blackberry, earth, iron, vanilla and toasty oak flavors. Converges on the dense structure, showing future potential. Best from 2020 through 2032.

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.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
