The wine shows garnet red hues, intense aromas of fresh, red berry fruit, such as cherry, pomegranate, sweet spices and Mediterranean herbs. On the palate the wine is well balanced, with generous pulp, seamless tannins and an endless finish.
The winery is named after the Avignonesi family, the founders of the original estate. In 2009, Avignonesi was acquired by Virginie Saverys who has since introduced organic and biodynamic farming methods to craft distinct, genuine wines with an even stronger character, and has acquired additional vineyards and a state-of-the-art winemaking facility in the Montepulciano appellation. They believe that the life force of the earth and the uniqueness of the terroir are at the heart of their brand. Avignonesi is reborn from the soil of their vineyards with each vintage in wines that mirror the subtle flavours of the site and the special traits of each year. The wines express the richness and beauty of the Montepulciano territory. They respect the heritage of Montepulciano, where Sangiovese wines have been produced for centuries, and wish to contribute to its future by being the finest representative of its heritage that they can be.
