Why do we love it?

Juicy red fruit, youthful freshness, refreshing acidity, strawberry, red cherry, and berry aromas, velvety tannins, elegant finish, and delightful aftertaste. If the above words gave you little heart palpitations, know that we just described the Rosso Di Montepulciano DOC - Poliziano, which arrived in our hands and is actually much better. This is confirmed by the 91pts and 90pts he got from James Suckling and Wine Spectator respectively!

The Poliziano estate is located in the Tuscan village of Montepulciano and was founded in 1961. It was named after the Renaissance poet Ange Politien who was born there and is currently run by Federico Carletti and oenologist Carlo Ferrini. It is one of Tuscany's most famous estates and its exemplary Vino Nobile wines, produced from Sangiovese and very specific growing conditions and grape selections, have been among the reasons Tuscany has taken and maintained a prominent position on the world wine map.

Rosso Di Montepulciano DOC, created in 1989, is essentially the simplest version of the above, without the strong restrictions and intended for everyday consumption and less aging, but maintaining the same exemplary quality! Carletti has now separated which are those vineyards that have the perfect characteristics to produce such a young, fruity, and rich yet round red wine. This eventually led him to produce a modern version of Sangiovese, now considered one of the estate's finest wines!

80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot, are fermented separately in stainless tanks, for about 10 days and at a temperature of 30 degrees. After the malolactic fermentation, 20-40% of the wine matures for about 8 months in oak barrels and then it is bottled.

An amazing result, at an even more amazing price!

ROSSO DI MONTEPULCIANO 2021 - POLIZIANO

PAIR IT

Pair it with grilled beef steak, a variety of aged cheeses, traditional pasticcio, meats with braised sauces, pizza with prosciutto, and peppery mushroom risotto.

Beef stew with tomato sauce and pasta

For the stew

  • 1 kg beef
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 glass of red wine
  • 1 tbsp. of tomato paste
  • 1 kg fresh tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 potato (whole)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 grains of allspice
  • 1 glass of boiling water
  • Salt
  • Pepper

 

For pasta

 

  • 1 pack of spaghetti
  • grated Parmesan
  • 1 tablespoon of butter

 

Wash the meat well, cut into large pieces and season well.

Saute the meat in some olive oil until it gets an even color, and turn it regularly to keep it from sticking.Once it’s evenly browned, add the red wine in the pan.

Add onion, tomato paste, fresh tomatoes and a whole potato (to help the sauce thickens).Add a teaspoon of sugar (to lower the acidity of the sauce), salt according to preference, 2 berries of allspice, cinnamon stick and a glass of boiling water.

Cover the casserole (leaving a small opening to breathe), let it simmer, and stir occasionaly.If the sauce is over reduced until the meat is cooked, add a little more water. after that remove the meat from the pot and place it on a platter. Put the sauce (along with the potato) in a blender, to make it velvety and then, return it to the pan. Bring it back to boil along with the meat until it is tender.

Shortly before the meal is done, boil the spaghetti in salted water according to the package instructions. Season well, add a tablespoon of butter and serve immediately after you sprinkle with grated cheese. Add as much sauce as you want and a piece of meat per serving.
