Cantaloro

Toscana I.G.T. Rosso


C antaloro is the entry wine of Avignonesi and is available in white, rosé and red. The wines are fruit forward, easy drinking and accessible. A fantastic option for an everyday bottle.
A versatile, young red wine with a ruby red colour and a bouquet characterised by inviting aromas of ripe cherries, blueberries and sweet spices. The taste is medium-bodied, fruity and smooth with a long lingering, dry finish, reminiscent of undergrowth, with an underlying hint of menthol.
