Wine & Spirits Poliziano, 2013 Lohsa Morellino di Scansano
"BEST BUY - Federico Carletti, proprietor of Poliziano in Montepulciano, produces this wine from vineyards just a few miles from the sea. It reflects a coastal warmth and concentration as well as the trademark cherry aromas of ciliegiolo (15 percent of the blend). Aged eight month in used barrels and tonneaux, it feels balanced and energetic, with a clean, herbal finish." –April 2015
VINEYARD SITE: Azienda Lohsa is Poliziano's property in the Maremma area of southwestern Tuscany. It consists of 18 hectares located 100 meters above sea level with south/southwest slopes containing sedimentary/sandstone soils.
WINEMAKING: After the manual harvesting of the grapes, fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature. The wine is then aged for 8 months in neutral French oak barriques and tonneaux.
