Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is the principal wine of Poliziano. Vino Nobile is a special, high-quality version of Chianti thanks to the Prugnolo Gentile (Sangiovese) grapes that characterize the Montepulciano area. Poliziano uses 85% Prugnolo Gentile in their blend, along with two traditional Chianti varieties, Colorino and Canaiolo, and a bit of Merlot. The complementary varieties add color, depth, and complexity to the elegance of the Sangiovese.

Bright black cherry, plum, earth, vanilla and toasty oak flavors are the hallmarks of this well-crafted red. Balanced, this needs a year or two to integrate more fully and extend the finish. Firm grip. Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo and Merlot. Best from 2021 through 2033.
