Description

100% Sangiovese, a vibrant and unvarnished taste of red fruit. Da.Di is bursting with the freshness and elegance typical of amphora-ageing. Medium body, sleek texture and mouth-watering red berries and cherries tantalise the senses, giving way to a soft spicy finish.

  • Delivery Information

Da-Di is vinified in 12 terracotta vessels made in Tuscany – 6 were manufactured by Artenova in Impruneta, and 6 were manufactured by Laboratorio San Rocco in Torrita di Siena using clay from Mount Amiata. This wine is composed of one-third whole bunches and two-thirds whole berries. Fermentation takes place with indigenous yeast, followed by a daily manual punchdown schedule. Da-Di is blended after three months, then returned to the amphora for an additional two months’ ageing before bottling.

Founded in 1974, Avignonesi is the leading winery in the Montepulciano area of Tuscany. Its flagship wine, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, is appreciated by critics and wine lovers worldwide. Avignonesi was purchased in 2009 by Virginie Saverys, who has brought significant changes to the winery.

She has worked tirelessly to convert the entire property to organic and biodynamic viticulture, with the clear goal of crafting distinct, genuine wines that fully express the singular characteristics of the Avignonesi terroir. In 2015 Avignonesi received its organic certification and is currently waiting to obtain biodynamic certification as well.

Today, Avignonesi owns 161 hectares of vineyards spread out over the Montepulciano and Cortona appellations. Resident winemakers, Ashleigh Seymour and Matteo Giustiniani oversee production, and under Virginie's guidance, Avignonesi has developed a production philosophy based on balance, elegance, brightness of fruit and a strong sense of place.

As always this red is amazing. Not too heavy but heavy enough and just delicious. Couldn’t recommend it more!
