Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano DOCG Poliziano
Poliziano's Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG is a great Tuscan red wine, characterized by powerful structure, 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. Obtained from 85% Prugnolo Gentile, 15% Colorino, Canaiolo and Merlot grapes, this Nobile di Montepulciano ferments in conical stainless steel tanks, at controlled temperature, with punching down and pumping over. Fermentation and maceration take about 18-22 days, after which the wine is aged about 14-16 months in wood: 2/3 in barriques and tonneaux of French oak (80% second passage and 20% new) and 1/3 in traditional barrels.
The wine shows an intense and penetrating ruby red colour. Persistent and wonderful fruity bouquet: marasca cherry, blackberry, cherries in spirit. On the palate it is well-structured and balanced, good acidity and pleasant tannins mixed to an aromatic return of vanilla and toasted notes. We recommend serving it at a temperature of 16 °C. This red Tuscan wine has an estimated aging potential of over 10-12 years if well preserved.
