Avignonesi : A Perfect Tuscan Winery, Life through a Glass

Named after the original founders of the estate, the Avignonesi family, the winery has undergone an exciting journey since it was first established. Acquired by Virginie Saverys in 2009, Avignonesi has grown in size and at the same time has become a leader in biodynamic viticulture in Italy.

Since the acquisition and thanks to Virginie’s respect for the ecosystem, her staff and the final consumer, the winery has started producing and crafting organic wines that are truly authentic to their origins yet singular and unique. And in the best biodynamic approach their wines receive minimal intervention in the cellar! Sustainability also plays a big part in the everyday life at Avignonesi.

To date, the estate has grown to 175 hectares of vineyards including the purchase of a state-of-the-art winemaking facility in the Montepulciano appellation. It is Virginie’s perseverance to look after the land and her compelling willingness to produce a wine that is quite unique and true to its origins that allowed for life to be brought back into the vineyards and created a healthier working environment for all staff.

The Avignonesi wines enhance the richness and elegance of the Montepulciano heritage. Sangiovese wines have been produced for centuries here, and the fascination that lies around this appellation is elevated by the ”back to basics, no un-natural intervention” approach that biodynamic viticulture entails.

This methodology and the passion shared by all staff for producing high quality products, due to the profound belief in the values shared by the management team, allows us to respect the innate character of each wine by following its natural journey from the soil to the cellar and, finally to the glass!

Very recently,  Avignonesi has been recognized and awarded Three Gold Medal by Asia Import News Awards 2020.

Cantaloro Rosso 2017 – Organic

Awarded Gold by Asia Import News

A versatile, young red wine with a ruby red colour and a bouquet characterised by inviting aromas of black cherry pie, black berries, thyme, red pepper grains and exotic spices. The taste is medium-bodied, fruity and smooth with a long lingering, dry finish, reminiscent of undergrowth, with an underlying hint of menthol.

Vino Nobile 2016

Awarded Gold by Asia Import News

The wine shows garnet red hues, intense aromas of ripe, red berry fruit, such as red plum, pomegranate and red vine peach, sweet spices and Mediterranean herbs. On the palate the wine is well balanced, with generous pulp, seamless tannins and an endless finish.

26 Rosso 2019 – Organic

Awarded Gold by Asia Import News

Fermented in stainless steel tanks with the use of indigenous yeasts, Ventisei Rosso receives partial carbonic maceration, which adds that candied-fruit flavour we all love. It’s all about fruit and elegance, it dances on your palate like an artful acrobat who always lands on his feet, precisely and smoothly.
Rosso is the wine you want for long talks and big thoughts, the ideal one to wash away all the heavy matters from your heart. Fresh raspberry notes, delicate underbrush hints and sweet spice aromas will charm you from the first sip. Juiciness and mineral finish will call for another glass straight away.
