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.

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.

"Made since 1968, Poliziano's stalwart Vino Nobile is oak-smoothed and chocolatey, with ageing in a combination of French barriques, tonneaux and larger casks. Sweet wood spice and vanilla lead but make room for liquorice and blackberry. It's full and rich with some Merlot plumpness, and chewy wood tannins and bright acidity underneath. It all works - just give it another year to knit together. There is a dash of Canaiolo Nero and Colorino here. 250,000 bottles produced. Drinking Window 2022 - 2028."

Black cherry, tar and iron aromas and flavors combine in this beefy red, with plenty of fruit equally matched by dense tannins. Balanced, lingering nicely on the finish. Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo and Merlot. Best from 2023 through 2032. 15,000 cases made, 2,500 cases imported.
