Our Polisia is VINO SLOW on Slow Wine 2018

Our Piceno Superiore DOC 2013 organic awarded on slow wine 2018

We are very proud of this award, the highest among those assigned by the annual Guide published by Slow Food, which stands out for the attention to

quality of work in the vineyard and in the cellar as well as the territorial expression of the wines being tasted.

For Slow food a Vino slow is: a bottle, which in addition to having excellent organoleptic quality, manages to condense in the glass, characteristics linked to the territory, history and environment. Since 2017, the attribution of this symbol implies the absence of chemical weeding in the vineyards. Slow Wine also responds to the criterion of the good relationship between quality and price, taking into account when and where it was produced.

This award rewards our desire to produce wines capable of telling our land and our traditions. And Polisia is probably, among our wines, the one that best represents the Piceno and its customs. Coming from organic vineyards of 60 and 40 years of Sangiovese and Montepulciano, the grapes traditionally grown in the Piceno, and produced with minimal intervention in the cellar, Polisia is inspired by the wines that our grandparents produced and drank daily. An intense bouquet that varies from spices to small red fruits, gentle tannins and a marked freshness make it a wine of great drink, the one that our grandparents used during the hard days of work in the fields.

And it's to themthat we want to dedicate this prestigious award: our grandparents who, with many sacrifices, managed to redeem what is now our company from a sharecropping contract that lasted for over 50 years. The same who planted the vineyards that still give us the grapes to produce this wine.

The presentation of the guide with awarding of the winners will take place on October 14, 2017 at the Verdi theater in Montecatini (PT). From 2.30 pm to 7.30 pm it will be possible to taste all the wines and cellars awarded by Slow wine in what is called "the greatest tasting of the year". For more info, please click here: Slow Wine.
