I would consider this gem today a baby Brunello and it might be my best Sangiovese bang for the buck of the entire year – especially during this 48 hour case sale.
Tucked between the towns of Montalcino and Montepulciano is the historic Sangiovese region called Vino Nobile di Montepulciano – a region famous for supplying wine to the Italian nobility. Of course, the name is often confused with the grape Montepulciano which is found in Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.
The result of the confusion is some of the best Sangiovese in the world at far under normal market prices. The terrain and the producers matter a ton here and Poliziano (along with five other producers) have been leading the quality revolution in the region.

Aromas of mulberry, plum, dried herb, chestnut and chocolate. Medium-to full-bodied with slightly rustic tannins and fresh acidity. Juicy, with a chalky texture and flavorful finish. Better from 2022.
