Founded in 1961 by Dino Carletti, Poliziano is located a few miles northeast of Montelpulciano, Italy. Dino’s son Frederico inherited the winery in 1982 and subsequently expanded the estate while improving overall quality. Today, Frederico and renowned winemaking consultants Carlo Ferrini and Maurizio Castelli oversee the 297 acre property, the majority of which is planted on the southern slope of the old town hill in Montepulciano. The Lohsa estate, which is located in Maremma, was purchased in the late 1990’s and is Poliziano’s second largest holding. This 65 acre property is planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon followed by Prugnolo Gentile, Ciliegiolo, Malvasia Nera and Canaiolo and supplies the grapes for Morellino di Scansano and Mandrone di Lohsa Rosso. The cornerstone of the estate remains Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and the cultivation of a regional Sangiovese clone called Prugnolo Gentile. In the proper hands, Prugnolo Gentile is capable of producing profound wines of balance, structure and elegance and Poliziano has proven its mastery of this varietal crafting modern, polished Brunellos that clearly express regional character. “One of Montepulciano’s reference-point producers” ~ The Wine Advocate 2010
