Poliziano Rosso di Montepulciano 2022

$14.50

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.
