One of the best Vino Nobile wines from Montepulciano. In order to obtain the very best quality, this wine is produced exclusively in the very best vintages. The Vino Nobile Asinone is generally made for 100% from the well-known Tuscan grape variety - Sangiovese. The vineyards are located at an altitude of about 350 meters near the old town of Montepulciano. The soil type is clay with stones. After picking and fermentation for 16 to 18 days, the aging process is continued in French oak barriques for a period of 16 to 18 months. The vineyards for the production of the Asinone were planted in 1963 and 1991 respectively. In the nose we smell black fruits, plums, vanilla. The taste has a strong attack with black fruit, vanilla, complex, minerals, a lot of concentration, ripe tannins, but after the first attack the wine becomes amazingly fresh with a lot of liveliness and freshness. The wine is not a blockbuster but a wine with a lot of finesse.

Vineyard for 2018 Poliziano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Asinone

Frederico Carletti, the current owner of Azienda Agricola Poliziano, is responsible for a revolutionary change. Carletti has turned Poliziano into a real wine-producing company, which produces and bottles its own wines. He went to Piemonte to learn the profession of an enologist at the university. He then did internships with various wine producers to gain the necessary practical experience. Then it was time to realize his childhood dream. Since taking office in 1981, the company's star has risen rapidly. His innovations included the planting of new grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as the creation of new wines, such as Le Stanze, Elegia and a Riserva from separate vineyards, such as the Vigna Asinone. With these showpieces, Carletti has won the hearts of wine lovers and has won numerous prizes at international competitions. Poliziano is now widely regarded as one of the great pioneers of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
