Details

Avignonesi is a wine producer in the Montepulciano region of southern Tuscany. It is well known for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, made from the Sangiovese variety, and its Vin Santo, which is the most sought-after on Wine-Searcher.

The soil is Pleistocenic sedimentation (3 million - 120,000 years ago) with sandy clay and moderate amounts of lime.

The plants are 27 years old. The vines are guyot-trained at an altitude of 300 metres a.s.l. / 984 feet a.s.l. and grow at a density of 2,564plants / hectare.

The grapes have been hand-picked from the best vineyard parcels and placed in small,vine leaf-coated bins.

The grapes are laid out for 3-4 months on straw mats in the “appassitoio” (drying room). They are then softly pressed and the must is transferred in “caratelli” (50-liter oak casks) for a slow, natural fermentation with the aid of an indigenous yeast known as “madre”.

Aging for this wine is done for 10 years in “caratelli”.
