ZONA: Toscana - Italia
VALUTAZIONE: @ @ @ @ @
Federico Carletti, the second generation at Poliziano, has made a powerful and spicy red IGT wine from Tuscany, in the same shape as many perhaps would describe it as "Super Tuscan", with Sangiovese (locally Prugnolo Gentile) from their hometown Montepulciano, Merlot from the hills of Cortona and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Maremma region. Poliziano started in 1961, now they have 120 ha of vineyard in Tuscany. The name Poliziano is an homage to the humanist poet Angelo Ambrogini, known as "Il Poliziano", born in Montepulciano in 15th century.

Piccole Elegiae has a deep ruby red colour, discrete limpid, relative high consistency. It was less complex in the nose than I expected, but maybe it needs more time in the cellars. I found some red and dark fruit, etheral, vanilla, and red roses. On the palette it's intense, persistent, dry (but very fruity), fresh, good portion of salt and minerals, gentle tannins and good warmth. I found tastes like red-blue-black fruit, vanilla, black pepper, violet, anise and caramel. Aging of the wine has been in steel-tanks and 6 months in oak-barrels (with 30% of the volume in used American oak barriques).

My favourite dish with this Piccole Elegiae was veal spiced with rosemary, salt and black pepper. And as a first dish it wasn't bad with pasta, fenel, garlic, onions and balsamic winegar. Try it with some chicken, turkey or pheasant. Have it at the end of the dinner with some aged cheeses like Pecorino and Parmesan. Serve it within 16-18 C° range.

I think the Piccole Elegiae will stand a storage of 5-7 years in the cellar.

    At the very southern end of Tuscany you find this big wine cooperative Cantina di Pitigliano, that has been doing wine for the last 50 years....
