Echoing the last review, my wife and I, with a small group of other guests, were given a tour by Jeniffer who gave an excellent overview of the winery and the wine-making process, Afterwards, we were met by Fabio who gave us an enthusiastic and super knowledgeable vertical tasting of all their wines -- from their table wine (Rosso) to their high end reserves.
Having been to many wineries both in the immediate region and Montalcino, I can attest that this was one of the better wine tours and tasting experiences for the following reasons:
First, on a practical level, the winery offered the tour and tasting, including an assortment of snacks for free - not all wineries do this for no cost. In fact, most wineries do charge, and most do not offer their full vertical selection of wines that Poliziano offered us. As a point in contrast, my wife and I went to La Braccesca winery last fall in the same area, not only did they offer us only their lower-end wines, they charged us what I would consider an exorbitant amount for the wine, which only costs them pennies. Talk about leaving a sour taste in ones mouth!
The second reason I would encourage a visit to Poliziano, and perhaps the most important, the wines are really good. And here let me return to point #1, by offering us their full range of wines to taste, it not only left us with a very positive impression of the winery, it encouraged us to purchase their wines, which we did. This goes to the old adage that sometimes you need to spend a little to make a lot. Poliziano obviously gets it; by offering an excellent tour and wine tasting experience they are making back their money in spades due to good publicity and enthusiastic followers.
