Da-Di

Toscana I.G.T. Sangiovese


A vignonesi goes “Terracotta” on a new Organic Rosso
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.
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.
