Poliziano Asinone Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG

Montepulciano, Pienza, Cortona – these small towns comprehensively describe the terrain on which this West Tuscan symbolic enterprise operates since 1961. The labels of the Poliziano winery, located below Montepulciano near Gracciano, have never disappointed wine lovers.

After years of continual experimentation, Dino Carletti identified the best quality potential of Poliziano’s grapes in the “Asinone” vineyard. The Nobile “Asinone” represents the highest expression of their production and the most accomplished synthesis between tradition, territory and enological innovation. Obtained from Sangiovese grapes, it expresses a recognizable style and a defined character, but also has wide-ranging appeal to international palates.
