Avignonesi Grandi Annate RSV Vino Nobile DOCG 2011
Ruby red colour. The ample bouquet opens with scents of camelias and wild roses, followed by notes of black currant and red plums, and hints of eucalyptus and sandalwood. The Grandi Annate is well-balanced and round, with concentration and structure coming from the soil and elegance and finesse coming from the age of the vines. The tannins are firm but silky, and the fruity, elegant mid-palate leads towards a long finish reminiscent of cedar. Vino Nobile Grandi Annate is crafted only in the very best vintages, where the grapes express the complexity of our terroir to the fullest, for the production of a wine rich in character, with the stamina to age in the bottle for many years.

The production philosophy of Grandi Annate is to enhance the peculiarities of our Sangiovese, while crafting a full-bodied, tightly woven wine with the stamina to refine for many years in the bottle.
BLAZING like the temperature of our fruit ripening... Wines characterized by warm and charming notes, and with a heart rich in substance. Thanks to the fresh and aerated soils of our vineyards we could compensate the hot and scorching season, avoiding the over ripening of our bunches and excessive alcohol level. Wines are rich, luscious and ethereal.
