Winemaker Notes

The assembly of two such different personalities such as Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon blend together, giving this wine a unique character. Dark ruby red in color with purple reflections, the nose opens with notes of blueberries, blackberries and incense going up to sandalwood and graphite. In the mouth it is dense and complex with hints of blackberry jam and cinnamon.

It then evolves like a balsamic explosion supported by good acidity. The lively tannin all over the palate accompanies the savory and persistent finish.

Blend: 49.58% Sangiovese, 50.42% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling

Sweet-berry aromas with white flowers and sandalwood. Medium to full body with fine, silky-textured tannins and a long, caressing finish. Real and curated. 50.3% sangiovese and 49.7% cabernet sauvignon. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.


WS 91
Wine Spectator
Deep in color and concentrated, with black currant and blackberry flavors at the core and wild herbs and spicy oak in the background. Balanced and fresh, with fine length. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2023 through 2032.

Avignonesi, Italy
Avignonesi Winery Video

The estate, which bears the name of a noble family from Montepulciano, was taken over in 2009 by the Belgian Virginie Saverys. In a decade, under her leadership, Avignonesi has become the largest regenerative wine estate in Italy. Out of respect for workers, consumers and the environment, Virginie Saverys has banned highly toxic synthetic biocides - alas too widespread in the wine world - which poison populations, soils, air and water. Concurrently, the cellar has forbidden the use of yeasts, dyes, enzymes, tannins and other industrial biochemical adjuvants. Finally, Avignonesi is vigorously pursuing an energy transition policy to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions drastically. Avignonesi is a benefit company and is a certified B Corporation. We are part of a global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. 

Convinced that there are no great wines without good grapes, Virginie focused her efforts on rehabilitating viticulture while giving the cellar a more supervisory than interventionist role.

Beyond giving nature back her rights, Avignonesi also fosters the authenticity of its products. Virginie Saverys and her team have developed a modern style of refreshing, fruit-driven wine where elegance prevails. In short, wines that are a pleasure to drink.

Avignonesi owns about 434 acres of fully certified organic and biodynamic vineyards. All wines are vegan and are made exclusively with grapes cultivated on the estate.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
