Coming in March: the NEW Grandi Annate
After a void of 5 vintages, the NEW Grandi Annate, produced under the leadership of Virginie Saverys, finally sees the light.
In keeping with the current style of Avignonesi, dedicated to producing a mono-varietal Vino Nobile where the territorial traits shape the character of the wine, also the Grandi Annate in its new form will be a pure Sangiovese. Infact, the 2011 vintage is produced exclusively with grapes from 40 year old vines from the Poggetti estate.
The Grandi Annate will be launched officially in the beginning of March 2015, in the US, with a series of tasting seminars in the cities of New York, Chicago and San Francisco, where Virginie Saverys and Ashleigh Seymour, winemaker, will present the wine and illustrate all that has been done in Avignonesi over the last 5 years in re-discovering the characteristics of Sangovese grown on Montepulciano soil.
We feel that this wine, more than any other, truly embodies our motto "terroir speaks; we listen", and we cannot wait to present it to the world.
