Sommelier's Notes

This is the perfect lighter red to choose if you're looking for something Italian that's smooth and a little spicy, but not too heavy

Avignonesi's basic Rosso is a versatile, everyday wine that really sings alongside roast meats, meat pies, and strong cheeses. It's produced from hand-picked grapes grown on 300m high south-facing slopes around the Tuscan town of Montepulciano and is aged for nine months in large oak barrels before bottling, with a further three months' bottle rest prior to release.


Winery: Avignonesi


General Aging: 5 months in oak and a minimum of 3 months in the bottle.
