Poliziano Le Stanze'02, Toscana IGT, Tuscany, Italy

Smooth tannins, long finish, velvety dry red.

Poliziano Le Stanze

Technical Data:70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, aged 18 months in new barriques followed by 8 months of bottle aging.

Description:Deep purple color. On the nose black cherry and blueberry notes emerge first, before notes of violet and hay and rounded balsamic echoes. In the mouth, it is immensely well-structured, striking a perfect balance between sweet tannins and freshness. The persistent finish is laden with fruity undertones.

Food Pairing & Services:A wine of considerable depth - thanks to the complexity of its aromas and flavours - it works wonderfully with substantial main courses and seasoned cheeses.


Suggested Retail Price:$29.54
