"A Sangiovese heart, a unique terroir and the distinct Avignonesi signature are the main ingredients for the finest expression of our Vino Nobile in one of the best vintages of the decade. Noble of soul, noble of substance. This is the last vintage of this style of Grandi Annate produced. In 2015 we will present a different Grandi Annate, pure Sangiovese and the best terroir expression of our Montepulciano vineyards we can craft. The first vintage of the new era of Grandi Annate will be 2011. Look out for it."

Beautiful aromas and flavors of macerated raspberry, rose, tobacco and black tea are allied to a supple texture. Though delicate and pure, there’s a solid base of tannins for support, with fine length. Needs time.
