Avignonesi, Rosso di Montepulciano 2018
Ashleigh Seymour and Matteo Giustiniani
A typical example of Sangiovese grown in Montepulciano, this wine shows lifted aromas of strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant with sweet spices. With its light and soft tannins, it is extremely versatile with food.
The fermentation was spontaneous with the use of indigenous yeast. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration on the skins lasted from 10 to 20 days, depending on the individual lots. Malolactic fermentation took place in large, Slavonian oak casks. Aged for 6 months in oak and a minimum of 3 months in the bottle.
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.
