For the second consecutive year our Polisia is VinoSlow on Slow wine
the definition of "Vino slow " for Slow Food 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.
We are very proud of this award, the highest among those assigned by the annual Guide published by Slow Food, which stands out for its attention to the quality of the work in the vineyard and in the cellar as well as to the territorial expression of the wines being tasted
This award rewards our desire to produce wines able to tell about our land and our traditions with total respect for the environment. And Polisia is probably, among our wines, the one that best represents the Piceno and its customs. Coming from 60 and 40 year old organic vineyards of Sangiovese and Montepulciano, the grapes traditionally grown in the Piceno area, and produced with the minimum interferences 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 is precisely to them that we want to dedicate this prestigious recognition: 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.
And from this vintage Polisia has a new graphic design also linked to the territory: all our labels are in fact made by Picene artists. The work used is the "Muro del Tempo" by Giorgio Pignotti, an artist from Ascoli Piceno. tutte le nostre etichette sono infatti realizzate da artisti piceni. L’opera utilizzata è il “Muro del tempo” di Giorgio Pignotti, artista di Castorano.
The presentation of the guide with awarding of the winners will take place on Saturday 13 October 2019 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 wineries awarded by Slow wine in what is called "the greatest tasting of the year". Slow Wine. Slow Wine.
