"Juicy and well lengthened in the primary profile showing notes of raspberries, blackcurrants, lemon blossom and cardamom. Full bodied, polymerized tannins of a splendid velvety nature and an harmonic, balanced finale which makes drinkability it's main weapon. Splendid from the start. Drink now or hold."

Founded in 1974, named after one of the founding family members, Avignonesi first established a reputation for big, brooding red and barrel-fermented Chardonnay and put the Vino Nobile region on the map once again. The estate was later bought in 2009 by Belgian heiress and shipping magnate Virginie Saverys, and thus began a total re-invention…
Top of the to do list was the conversion of all the vineyards to organic viticulture, the replanting of some plots to Sangiovese and acquisition of more vineyards. Virginie committed to Sangiovese as the only grape to be used for the Vino Nobile and Rosso di Montepulciano. She recruited organics specialist Adriano Zago to oversee the process of conversion and organic certification which finally came in 2016. In 2012 she decided to follow Biodynamic practices in both vineyard and cellar.
These days with the vineyards alive with bees, flowers and microbial life, the soils are healthy and Virginie’s goal of a wine that reflects its place and grape (rather than cellarly shenanigans) is flourishing.
