Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration on the skins lasted from 20 to 30 days. Aged for 18 months in large Slavonian oak casks and oak barriques.

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.

Lovely but still needs time

Whilst it's drinking nicely now, even after a couple of hours letting it breathe you can tell that it's still very tight and restrained, with a tannic backbone that needs a few more years to relax and show its true self. Which I'm sure will be a very lovely self.

Red brick colour indicating maturity, but might develop further. Firm backbone, but no harsh tannins. Dark fruit flavours, some savoury tones, and some of the cigar box/lead pencil characteristics of a fine claret. I think it could easily pass as a very decent St Julien/Pauillac. Would probably pair well with steak. A serious wine for the 'Old World' drinkers.
