The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2013 is brick red in colour, bursting with notes of bright, red fruits, dried violets and hints of savory spice. The taste is medium-bodied and balanced with luscious acidity and tart cherry flavours, complemented by a long savoury finish.

Read more about the wine making process

The Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a selection of Sangiovese from all of our vineyards in Montepulciano, creating a multifaceted wine that is a true expression of the terroir.  

2013 was a  warm  vintage in Montepulciano, favouring the development of ripe, fruity  notes  and producing wines which are delicious to drink young, while maintaining a good balance between tannins and acidity, which will allow them to age well in the bottle.

Accolades

91+ / 100 - Wine Advocate

The 2013 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. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a red wine that can be consumed young. In fact, I would recommend an early drinking window in the case of this wine.
