Avignonesi Rosso Cantaloro 2015
Located near the village of Valiano, between Montepulciano and Cortona, Avignonesi has long been a flagship producer in Tuscany. They practice organic, sustainable and biodynamic farming in all vineyards. Produced from an exceptional terroir, Cantaloro is the estate’s second wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sangiovese. It is aged 18 months in stainless steel and oak and offers notes of ripe blackberry, thyme licorice and menthol on a medium-bodied frame.
JS92: "Plenty of treacle, licorice, plum liqueur, blackberry tart and vanilla. Full body, medium acidity, ripe tannins and a fruit-forward finish. Structured. Drink in 2019." - James Suckling
