The winery is named after the Avignonesi family, the founders of the original estate. Constant research and development aimed at expressing the true character of the Montepulciano terroir has, over time, earned the winery a well-deserved place among the flagship producers of Tuscany. In 2009, Avignonesi was acquired by Virginie Saverys who has since introduced organic farming methods to craft distinct, genuine wines with an even stronger character.
Tuscany is one of Italy’s most cherished regions and with its wealth of local produce, Montepulciano is a jewel in the Tuscan crown. The Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile grape lends its fullness and body to Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a wine which, like Avignonesi itself, is strongly rooted in the terroir of Montepulciano.
This is a red wine. The label on the bottle is simple but the brand 50 & 50 is standing out. Grapes composition are 50% Merlot (Avignonesi), 50% Sangiovese (Capannelle). I haven’t tasted this wine. However I like to put it on my wine rack collection.
