IN VIOLAS

Denominazione di Origine Controllata

The establishment of the Cortona Doc in 1999, the immediate affirmation as a suitable area for international vines, together with the friendship with the Aliotti Tommasi family – owner of optimal land – were the inspiring factors for the birth of Poliziano’s enological project in Cortona. In 2006, convinced of the striking potential of Merlot cultivated in the Pliocene clay of Cortona, we began bottling In Violas.
