Our Vino Nobile is our winery’s calling card. As our estate’s first wine, produced since 1968, it is the preview and best representation of the vintage, combining the terroir, winemaking and the culture of Poliziano. This wine is predominantly Prugnolo Gentile (our local name for Sangiovese), with small percentages of Colorino, Canaiolo, and Merlot. The signature of this wine’s structure comes from the silty-clay soils that add further depth and roundness.

In 2019, the grapes were all hand-harvested with a further optical sorting in the cellar. The wine was fermented slowly and delicately in conical steel vats for 15-20 days before 14-16 months of wood aging. This aging is done two-thirds in French oak barriques and tonneaux with the remainder in large wooden vats. The beauty of this Vino Nobile is its balance of drinkability in its youth with the possibility of aging further for up to 15 years after release.

Press Notes :

91 points, Vinous Media - “All charm, the 2018 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is an attractive wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Dark cherry fruit, licorice, menthol, pine, tobacco and cedar add pretty aromatic nuances. This easygoing, mid-weight Vino Nobile has plenty to offer.”– Antonio Galloni
