Wine Review: Some wines are built for food and this black cherry colored wine calls out for an Italian dining experience in Boston’s North End. This wine opens with a forward cherry like bouquet with hints of oak. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, has pronounced acidity, pleasant woodsy cherry flavors. The finish is delightfully dry, and lingers for some time. This wine would pair nicely with Chicken Parmigiana or baked ziti. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Vino Nobile, literally translated as noble wine, is the highest incarnation of Sangiovese Prugnolo. Poliziano’s offering shows intense (but not exaggerated) perfumes with both floral and fruit nuances and a well structured palate of full-tannins and solid oak on the lingering finish. This is truly representative of the vareital's deep Tuscan roots.
