Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G. 2013
10 Year Vintage Release


Fermented, aged, bottled and carefully stored in Avignonesi’s cellar. 10 years later, Avignonesi’s Nobile 2013 updates its aesthetics to celebrate its innate ageing capacity and evolution.

The Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG 2013 has a garnet red colour. Intense aromas of undergrowth, dehydrated plum and graphite evolve after a few minutes towards blackberry jam and sweet spices such as cardamom and cinnamon. In the mouth, it is dense and balsamic, with a medium structure. On the palate it is sweet and pleasant, enveloped by round and velvety tannins with a savoury and persistent finish.

TECH SHEETS

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.
