Poliziano

Winery Description:

The Poliziano estate was formed in 1961 from an original nucleus of 22 hectares, bought by the owner Dott. Federico Carletti ‘s father, and has now reached 200 hectares, of which 120 are cultivated with DOC and DOCG vineyards. As soon as Dott. Federico Carletti had taken his degree in agriculture, he spent a few years in northern Italy where he gained experience in farm management. In 1980 he entered the Poliziano estate. His work at the Poliziano estate starts in the vineyards, eliminating the less favourably positioned sites and replanting where conditions of soil and climate are optimal. Selected clones, planting layouts, rootstocks, pruning methods and training systems are chosen with the sole object of producing grapes of premium quality. This is the starting-point for Poliziano wines: they are made only from estate-grown grapes, respecting the characteristics of their vintage and the zone they come from. The greatest care is taken over production; the grapes are rigorously selected at varying stages, during ripening, when they are harvested and when they arrive in the cellar. Fermentation and maturation are carried out with the maximum attention: the extraction of the substances from their skins takes place in the new cellar in a very softy way and the choice of wood is carefully made. Federico also place great importance on the representative character of his wines: there are now fewer labels and their number will be further reduced, since the aim is to produced and market wines which are highly representative of their category and which the customer can easily recognize and enjoy.”
