Located on the western side of Montalcino, the estate is quite high in terms of altitude - roughly 480 meters above sea level. This altitude ensures excellent ventilation which is salutary for grapes, as it reduces mold production to a bare minimum. The constant action of the wind combined with the characteristics of the soil on the western side of Montalcino reinforce the character of the elegant wines produced by the estate. The vines themselves are over twenty years old and have therefore grown long root systems making them more resilient during periods of draught. These deep roots are able to reach minerals and components that and not present in the top soils and enrich the taste and aromas of the wines.
Polissena has a deep ruby-red color. It has an intense bouquet, with notes of underbrush and hints of red fruit. It is dry, with a good body and a pleasant hint of tannins. The balance and elegance of Polissena fully comply with the Tuscan tradition.
