Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2014
Intense aromas of fresh, red fruits and forest floor with a touch of sweet spices. The taste is medium-bodied, round and elegant with silky tannins and a long lasting finish.
Wine Spectator – There’s loads of Sangiovese character here, from the earthy, tobacco-scented beginning to the cherry, leather and earth flavors, all underlined by stiff, chalky tannins. Rustic yet soulful. Best from 2018 through 2024.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2014 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano marks a very happy return for Avignonesi. This wine underlines the commitment and the dedication of the estate's new owners and I could not be happier for this turnaround. Past vintages may have seen smaller percentages of Merlot, but this vintage paints a pretty picture of Sangiovese in a classic vintage. The Tuscan grape requires a long growing season and a sunny September. This vintage offered both. The bouquet opens to wild fruit aromas with distinct mineral tones that define and delineate the aromatic offering. The mouthfeel reveals good complexity and lots of bright freshness.
