Poliziano – 19/04/2012

Rosso di Montepulciano 2010
Spicy and juicy on the nose, expressing purple and red fruits with plenty of fresh acids and balance. This is a classic style for the region, and is made up of 80% sangiovese and 20% merlot.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2008
A subtle rustic earthy nose, with great intensity and plump mellow tannins, a wine of approachability and elegance. This was yet another wine to show the majesty of the 2008 vintage in Tuscany.

Asinone 2007
100% sangiovese wine. Quite open and broad yet subtle and concentrated, very soft and generous with plum, cranberry and cassis.

Asinone 2006
A much more focused and expressive nose, with significantly more elegance and structure, drive and focus on the middle of the palate.

Le Stanze 2006
A ‘super tuscan’ blend of 90% cabernet sauvignon and 10% merlot. Rich and textured, with bold fruit sweet tannins and very integrated oak, showing approachability and complex nutty characters.

In Violas Cortona Merlot 2008

A dusty earthy aromatic wine, had some structure but was very broad and unfocused.

Lohsa Morellino di Scansano 2010
Unctuous and full, was uncomplicated and flavoursome with some earthy mineralic elements.

Mandrone di Lohsa 2008
The reserve of the previous wine, but is made from 80% cabernet sauvignon and other varieties whilst the Lohsa is led by sangiovese. Similar to the In Violas, being quite approachable and soft with plenty of flavour, but lacking distinction and focus.
