Description

“Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is the principal wine of Poliziano. Revered by nobility through the centuries, Vino Nobile was often hailed as “the wine of kings.” Today, Vino Noble is still considered to be special, thanks to the Prugnolo Gentile clone of Sangiovese that is grown in the Montepulciano area. Poliziano uses 85% Prugnolo Gentile in their blend, along with two traditional Tuscan varieties, Colorino and Canaiolo, and a bit of Merlot. The complementary varieties add color, depth, and complexity to the elegance of the Sangiovese.” – Poliziano

“Ripe, luminous red berries with fine spices and a hint of crushed-stone minerality. Medium to full body on the palate with fine herbs, citrus and berries all wrapped by fine, crumbled tannins. Delicious now.” – 92 points, James Suckling

“This red offers an inviting expression of cherry, raspberry, floral, mineral and spice flavors. Pure, with a firm backbone of tannins, vibrant acidity and a lingering, fruity aftertaste. Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo and Merlot. Best from 2025 through 2040.” – 92 points, Wine Spectator
