Avignonesi Rosso di Montepulciano
With its abundant, upfront fruit and bright acidity, Avignonesi’s Rosso di Montepulciano is a typical example of Sangiovese from Tuscany. The Netflix of reds, that surprises you and calls you back for more for its great drinkability.
The Rosso di Montepulciano 2018 has a ruby red colour highlighted by purple reflections. In the nose, it opens with caresses of strawberry, raspberry and black currant that dance together with aromas of sweet spices such as cinnamon. On the palate, it is pleasant and fresh, supported by a good acidity. Ready to drink, it has a light and soft tannic structure accompanied by generous aftertaste notes typical of Sangiovese.
This great year was reflected in abundant and healthy bunches filling the organic vineyards. A warm spring set the scene for what proved to be an exciting vintage. The grapes benefited from a mild summer with occasional showers, allowing them to reach perfect ripeness.
