Poliziano Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano 2009, Docg
A wonderfully savoury, earthy, herbal, dusty red fruit flavoured, old world classic here, with significant complexity and depth, not to mention lingering length. This incorporates all of the expected savoury character of sangiovese from the region, neither overly rustic nor compromisingly modern - just right. Score: 91 (John Szabo, MS, www.WineAlign.com, Jan 2013)

This wine pours a beautifully dark ruby in color and opened up with aromas of black cherry, dark plums, blackcurrants, forest floor, sandalwood, tobacco and vanilla notes. On the mouthfeel, medium-full bodied, great flavours, beautifully structured, harmonious with fresh acidity and fined grained tannins. A great deal of finesse and elegance on the finish, with nice sweet and sour fruit flavours and savoury spices lingering. I love the seductive fruit and savoury personality of this Poliziano Vino Nobile and the great mouthfeel, well handled use of barrel fermentation, should age quite nicely over the next three to four years. Gorgeous wine, strongly recommended.
This Sangiovese offers red fruit on the nose with some earthy funk. On the palate there's more red fruit, a medium mouthfeel with alcohol at the end of a lengthy finish. Grippy tannins and juicy acidity. Well matched for tomato based pasta sauces. January 2014.
