A Sangiovese heart, a unique terroir and the distinct Avignonesi signature are the main ingredients for the finest expression of the Avignonesi Vino Nobile, Grandi Annate. Vino Nobile Grandi Annate is the finest expression of Sangiovese from our Montepulciano vineyards. This wine is produced only in the very best years, when the climate brings optimum growing conditions to the vines, permitting the grapes to express all the complexity of the terroir, leading to a wine that is rich in character with the stamina to age for many years.
Medium ruby red.
The elegant bouquet opens with notes of wild roses, plums and a variety of red fruits, underlined by intriguing scents of sandalwood, myrrh and delicate hints of cloves.
The Grandi Annate 2012 is full-bodied yet delicate and round with a fresh acidity and a savoury finish that lingers on the palate.
