One of the great, modern reds, and never before available in the UK, Poliziano's Le Stanze was named in honour of the poet Angelo Ambrogini, known as "Poliziano". Produced from a minimum 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and balanced by Merlot, all grown in vineyards arouund Montepulciano, Le Stanze has a style that is classic Bordeaux à la Toscane - the very essence of a Supertuscan. It allows Poliziano to cater to international tastes while remembering the traditional value of Montepulciano and its place in the production of great wines with strong ageing potential.
The grapes are harvested by hand. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, with milling that includes repassing the must over the grape pomace. Fermentation and maceration take 20 –25 days. The wine is then allowed to age for 16 months in barriques of new French oak.
Le Stanze 2015 has the potential to age for at least 15 years.
Dense ruby red. Overt aromas of grilled pepper, bay leaves and cinnamon mixed with balsmic hints. Elegant and lingering palate with velvety, super-ripe tannins. Persistent mineral, long finish
