Da-Di Toscana IGT Sangiovese

Da•Di

Toscana I.G.T.

At Avignonesi, striving for excellence goes hand in hand with experimenting with 100% Tuscan wine-making processes. The intention is to allow the habitat to prevail over foreign influences. For this particular wine, Avignonesi has put aside steel and oak in favour of Tuscan clay. Chinese for “earth, soil”, the name Da-Di was chosen to underline this particularity.
The nose opens with a sweet spiciness: cinnamon and star anise accompanied by small red fruits such as raspberry and currant. The aromas are suave and well balanced. The entrance into the mouth is welcoming and harmonious. The silky tannin caresses the lips and paves the way for a body of medium density and persistence. The finish is the highlight of the encounter between freshness and sweetness, which entices to sip another glass.

Nose with intense and fascinating, precise and varietal aromas. Notes of cherry, ripe raspberries and currants intertwine with harmonious nuances of rosolio and wild strawberry. Viscous, dense, vibrant and explosive on the palate. Red fruits such as morello cherry and black cherry caress the palate accompanied by floral touches. The well-present tannin spreads on the lips recalling the real and tenacious Sangiovese di Toscana. The finish is the highest point of the encounter between freshness and sweetness, a combination that only terracotta wine can offer.

Data sheet Da-Di Rosso 2020
The sediments you might find in this wine show that it is made of pure Sangiovese with minimal intervention. The deposit is due to its high content of a natural antioxidant called quercetin, which is perfectly safe. This is not a flaw, it is a characteristic of the pure Sangiovese.​

It comes also in white!
