From 10-35 year old vines in the Le Capezzine and I Poggetti Vineyards. The grapes were macerated on their skins for 20-25 days in stainless steel tanks and aged for 18 months in Slavonian oak barrels (50%) and neutral French barriques (50%).
Fresh and elegant, this medium-bodied wine shows ample red fruit and notes of violet and savory herbs with a streak of balanced acids and minerality. Fine-grained tannins lend structure to the lingering and pleasant finish.
85% Prugnolo Gentile
10% Canaiolo Nero
A fresher style of Vino Nobile that’s elegant and pretty, showing red cherries, a hint of licorice, some herbs and a slice of blueberry cake. The palate is well defined with lots of acidity, red fruits, a medium body and a fruity finish. Drink now and enjoy. - James Suckling 92 Points
The queen of the ball is the 2014 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. This wine shows grace and elegance, and it pulls itself together with a profound sense of firmness and textural compactness. The quality of fruit is sweet and accessible, but the wine also reveals ethereal tones of grilled herb and blue flower that add to its good complexity. Avignonesi shows great results in a difficult vintage. - Robert Parker 91 Points
