90 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$17 list] Fragrant purple flower, ripe dark-skinned berry and whiffs of exotic spice shape the nose. It's elegant and structured, doling out juicy black cherry, black currant, star anise and a hint of espresso alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2022. Alcohol 14%. (Apr 2020)"
Producer notes: "Poliziano selected a number of vineyards with particular characteristics in order to obtain a wine that is young, fruity, full-bodied, but not hard; a selection that has allowed the winery to classify the Rosso di Montepulciano as the 'Second Wine' of Poliziano."
