Avignonesi are one of Tuscany's best wine producer. Striving for excellence at Avignonesi goes hand in hand with experimenting with 100% Tuscan wine-making processes. 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.
This case contains one each bottle:
2021 Avignonesi Da Di Toscana Sangiovese IGT (James Suckling - 91 points)
For this particular wine, Avignonesi has put aside steel and oak in favour of Tuscan clay. Da-Di is vinified in 13 terracotta vessels made in Tuscany. The wine is then blended after three months, then returned to the amphora for an additional two months ageing before bottling.
Nose with intense and fascinating, precise and varietal aromas. Notes of cherry, ripe raspberries and currants are harmoniously intertwined with nuances of wild strawberry. Viscous, dense, vibrant and explosive on the palate. The red fruits, morello cherries and black cherries, straightforward and sincere, come back to the palate and fill it with bright colours. The well-present tannin spreads out on the lips thus recalling the real and tenacious Sangiovese from Tuscany. The finish is the highest point of the encounter between freshness and sweetness, a combination that only terracotta wine can offer.
2019 Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (James Suckling - 92 points)
100% Sangiovese. The wine is ages for at least 18 months in Slavonian oak barrels, oak barriques and tonneaux (500 ltr.) followed by at least 6 months in bottles.
The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano shows intense garnet red reflections. On the nose aromas of small red fruits, strawberries and currants. Then pomegranate and the unmistakable violet scent of good Sangiovese. In the background a touch of vanilla, sweet spices and liquorice. The palate is well balanced with hints of ripe cherries and plums, supported by precise and elegant tannins. The body is warm and enveloping with a long and persistent finish.
