"Rosso di Montepulciano" is a D.O.C. only since 1989 and it can also be produced simply by downgrading the grapes registered in Vino Nobile.
For Poliziano, on the other hand, a choice was made without compromise: the most suitable vineyards were selected to obtain a young, fruity and full-bodied wine.
0.75 l bottle.
Poliziano is a Rosso di Montepulciano DOC produced with selected grapes and composed of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot.

Fermentation and maceration last for 12 days, followed by aging for 8 months in steel and in large barrels, for 20% of the total mass.
