Federico Carletti owner of the Poliziano farm, thanks to a different cultural level and technical preparation, boasts excellent quality Tuscan wines such as his Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
Poliziano’s History and Philosophy
Not many denominations, not even the historical ones, can boast of having had a widely recognized leader for over thirty-five years, a guide at the head of a company whose wines are undisputed examples of high quality and great class in its production area. And it is even more difficult if we consider that this denomination in the past lived a period of relative obscurity, a moment in which the prestige previously achieved was questioned and the luster of which the wines had once enjoyed had almost disappeared.
This is, however, the only way to describe the work of Federico Carletti and his Poliziano winery , in the town of Montepulciano , south-east of Tuscany . The estate was founded by his father, Dino Carletti , and subsequent large purchases of land, then planted with vineyards, made the company, already in the 70s, an important productive reality in terms of size. But it was not until 1980, with the arrival of his son Federico Carletti , an agricultural graduate from the University of Florence, that things began to change drastically. Montepulciano and its Vino Nobile have been known and awarded at least as much as theChianti Classico until the mid-1900s, a time when Brunello di Montalcino did not even exist, but the post-war period was a difficult period for Tuscan agriculture, given that major socio-economic upheavals created substantial problems for those men who were accustomed to simply owning their own possessions and not businessmen who ran them for profit. The quality suffered a lot and the wines were not considered at all on the main markets.
The wines of Poliziano
But this was not the case with Poliziano, where Carletti, with a different attitude, and above all a different cultural level and technical preparation, started selling his versions of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, both the regular offer (180 thousand excellent bottles) than the true selection of excellence from the Asinone vineyard, a wine stronghold for Tuscany. These have been integrated with a high-level blend of Bordeaux (Le Stanze), while investments in other areas have produced excellent examples of both Merlot (from Cortona) and Morellino di Scansano, both of a complex blend, Lohsa, from the Tuscan Maremma. A model company, which continues to work with the same commitment of a generation needle.
