Notes from the Winemaker:

After years of continual experimentation, we identified the best potential for quality in the vineyards of “Asinone”.The Nobile “Asinone” is the highest expression of our production and the most complete synthesis of tradition and oenological innovation.

Produced from Sangiovese grapes, this wine has an unmistakable style and distinct character, but it is, nevertheless, capable of holding its own in relation to international tastes.


Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Poliziano's 2014 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Asinone is a deeply intriguing wine. In 2014, the flagship Asinone doesn't have its signature depth, power or concentration, but the wine does not suffer at all from that. If anything, the personality of this cool vintage allows the wine's aromatics to come through very nicely. Sweet herb, tobacco, mint, anise and bright red cherry fruit are all beautifully delineated. The 2014 is perhaps a touch compact, but it makes up for that with its superb persistence. This is a terrific showing from Poliziano." - Antonio Galloni (Apr 2018)

91 Points - James Suckling:
"A tangy and fresh wine with plum and berry character and hints of violets. Medium body. Flavorful finish. Nicely done for a 2014. Drink now." - (October 20, 2017)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Asinone is a deep and complete wine. Only 10,000 bottles were produced in order for the winery to keep momentum going (and not skip a vintage) despite severely reduced yields in 2014. The wine is silky and elegant with bright berry nuances of dried raspberry and cherry. It closes with balsam intensity followed by grilled herb and licorice. Asinone is 100% Sangiovese." - Monica Larner (31st Jan 2018)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Shows fine balance, richness and purity, from the beam of cherry fruit to the dense yet well-integrated tannins. Graphite, earth, spice and leafy underbrush notes add depth. Excellent finish. Best from 2018 through 2026. 1,000 cases made." – BS (Sep 30, 2017)
