Avignonesi Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano 2015

2015 Vintage

Avignonesi’s Nobile philosophy is deeply rooted in balance and terroir. Made of 100% Sangiovese estate grown grapes, the wine shows an elegant medium body, seamless tannins and a unique tasting profile. Our Nobile is a precise portrait of the variety of the Sangiovese growing in the Nobile di Montepulciano appellation. At its first stages it stands out for its exceptional drinkability and over the decades it surprises for its impressive ageing potential.

Tasting Notes

The wine shows garnet red hues, intense aromas of ripe, red berry fruit, such as red plum, pomegranate and red vine peach, sweet spices and Mediterranean herbs. On the palate the wine is well balanced, with generous pulp, seamless tannins and an endless finish.
