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.
The estate's flagship 2007 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Asinone is a single-vineyard offering from 45 year-old vines that spent months in French oak. Explosive, ripe and totally seductive, the Asinone presents a heady array of dark fruit, new leather, and licorice, along with menthol, spices and a host of other balsamic nuances that come to life in the glass. The French oak is already beautifully integrated, but the fruit is still quite vibrant, suggesting the wine needs at least another few years in bottle to develop its full range of aromas and flavors. Today, I can only marvel at the wine's exceptional balance and drop-dead gorgeous personality. The Asinone is a winner from Poliziano. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Asinone is a beautiful expression of Prugnolo Gentile that boasts bright accents of spice, mature fruit, black mineral and light barbecue smoke. It is elegant, tight and would make an excellent pairing partner to meat, pasta or risotto.
