The beautiful Poliziano Estate is located on the slopes below Montepulciano near the village of Gracciano in Tuscany. It’s owned by the Carletti family who are now on their third generation of family winemakers. They started with 55 acres, but have grown with the success of their wines into a sprawling 500-acre estate that is a must-visit if you’re ever in the area.
Their specialty is Rosso di Montepulciano Toscana, a more straightforward version of Vino Nobile that’s meant to be enjoyed in its youth and is perfect for everyday consumption and food pairings. The wines are incredibly energetic and expressive but also somewhat soft and shy, -not overly tannic but instead more full of vibrant red fruits.
Their current vintage, the 2022 is a sizzler and unsurprisingly, it comes attached to a 91-point review from James Suckling. The wine is excellent and a steal at the release price, let alone where we’re able to get today. Suckling focused on the wine’s “crunchy and laid-back palate with a pristine, firm finish”. I think he nailed that one on the head.

91 Points, James Suckling
Youthful, brambly nose with lots of cherries, strawberries, dried herbs and potpourri. Crunchy and laid-back on the palate with a pristine, firm finish.
91 Points, Wine Enthusiast – 90 Points, James Suckling
“Cherries, strawberries and a hint of raspberries are on the nose, with some wild fennel and topsoil bringing in herbaceous, earthy notes. More cherries and berries are on the palate, with a mineral salinity and chalky tannins that emphasize the flavor and texture of freshly turned soil drawn from the nose.” -Wine Enthusiast
92 Points, James Suckling
It’s a very intense wine that was described by James Suckling in his 92-point review as “firm and focused” and I think really shows off with its wild red berry fruit, that’s chewy and slightly spicy yet undoubtedly fresh and fruity with lots of symmetry in the glass. The tannins are super silky, making this one incredibly approachable and the finish is persistent and balanced making it extremely memorable.
