External Reviews for Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Poliziano
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2007 - 88 pts, Wine Spectator/ A fruity red, with slightly austere, chewy tannins. Medium-bodied, with good ripe fruit underneath it all. Should soften with bottle age.
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G. 2006 - Tre Bicchieri, Gambero Rosso Guide to Italian Wines/ ... The Nobile di Montepulciano Asinone remains the estate's undisputed standard-bearer and the '06 confidently picked up its customary Three Glasses trophy.
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2007 - 91 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Poliziano consistently delivers smooth and rich expressions that show the best of Montepulciano. Aromas include black berry, cherry, smoked spice, leather and moist tobacco. Pair this wine with stewed veal.
/ Deep, bright ruby red with aromas of black cherry, black plum and violets. Medium-full with very good to excellent concentration. Great mid-palate and depth of fruit- this is a wine that coats the palate and is a mouthful of wine. Great intensity! Lively acidity and nicely integrated oak. Best in 7-10 years. This is the finest Vino Nobile di Montepulciano I have tasted from Poliziano and it is clear the proprietor Federico Carletti is not resting on his laurels as the finest estate in Montepulciano.
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2005 - 92 Points, Wine Review Online/ ...something really special from Tuscany...Ultra-classy and extremely well balanced and integrated; the wine shows fruit that is at once concentrated and intense in flavor, yet restrained in ripeness. The fruit is edged with a palpable minerality, lots of very fine-grained tannin, and lip-smacking acidity that is perfectly integrated with the fruit. Although this is ready to enjoy now with fairly robust foods, it will develop additional aromatic complexity and continue to soften for another five years at a minimum.
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2006 - 90 Points, Wine Advocate/ The 2006 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (Sangiovese) is particularly successful in this vintage. This warm, expansive red offers up ripe cherries, herbs and tobacco intermingled with scents of sweet toasted oak. The wine's balance and sense of harmony are impeccable.
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2006 - 88 Points, Wine Spectator/ Rich and ripe on the nose, with lots of plum and raspberry character. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Lots of new wood. But juicy and flavorful.
