2016 Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $30.00

93 Pointz James Suckling

A bright, pretty Vino Nobile showing rose petals, tulips and orange zest. Taut tannins draw out fine layers of firm tannins, coating the vibrant fruit in sparkling acidity. Medium-bodied and medium chewy. Crunchy on the finish. Drink now or hold.

93 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

Fragrant and loaded with finesse, this has enticing aromas of dark-skinned berry, violet, camphor and whiffs of pipe tobacco. The vibrant, linear palate has great tension, delivering juicy Morello cherry, crushed mint, orange zest and star anise framed in taut, fine-grained tannins. It’s  balanced, with bright acidity. Drink 2022–2036. Cellar Selection

 

2015 Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Reviews

   92 Pointz Decanter

Since acquiring the property in 2009, Virginie Saverys has worked to convert all 162-plus hectares of vineyards to organic and biodynamic practices. In 2015 the Sangiovese was harvested relatively early, between 10-28 September. Hints of dried rose petals, violet, pepper and black tea add complexity to fragrant red cherry and strawberry. While light on its feet and immediately appealing, it has the substance and structure to hold for the next eight years.

Aromas of baking spice, mature plum and crushed aromatic herb lift out of the glass. Elegant and linear, the taut medium-bodied palate offers dried cherry, star anise, and a hint of espresso alongside youthfully austere fine-grained tannins.

90 Pointz James Suckling

This has some pleasant, red-fruit aromas, but there’s a slightly unexpected undercurrent of dried tobacco, leather, and cedar. The palate shows good form and polish, though, finishing round and juicy. Pure Sangiovese.

 

2014 Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Reviews

92 Pointz James Suckling

A fresher style of Vino Nobile that’s elegant and pretty, showing red cherries, a hint of licorice, some herbs and a slice of blueberry cake. The palate is well defined with lots of acidity, red fruits, a medium body and a fruity finish. 

91 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The queen of the ball is the 2014 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. This wine shows grace and elegance, and it pulls itself together with a profound sense of firmness and textural compactness. The quality of fruit is sweet and accessible, but the wine also reveals ethereal tones of grilled herb and blue flower that add to its good complexity. Avignonesi shows great results in a difficult vintage.

90 Pointz Wine Spectator

A light, elegant style, delivering cherry, iron, leather and earth flavors in a balanced profile. Clean and lively, with a lingering aftertaste of leather, earth and almond. Drink now through 2023.

 

2013 Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Reviews

91 Pointz Wine Spectator

There’s loads of Sangiovese character here, from the earthy, tobacco-scented beginning to the cherry, leather and earth flavors, all underlined by stiff, chalky tannins. Rustic yet soulful. Best from 2018 through 2024.

91 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 2013 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano marks a very happy return for Avignonesi. This wine underlines the commitment and the dedication of the estate’s new owners and I could not be happier for this turnaround. Past vintages may have seen smaller percentages of Merlot, but this vintage paints a pretty picture of Sangiovese in a classic vintage. The Tuscan grape requires a long growing season and a sunny September. This vintage offered both. The bouquet opens to wild fruit aromas with distinct mineral tones that define and delineate the aromatic offering. The mouthfeel reveals good complexity and lots of bright freshness. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a red wine that can be consumed young. In fact, I would recommend an early drinking window in the case of this wine.

A fresh and clean wine with chocolate, berry and light lemon. Some hazelnut too. Medium to light body. Refined textured finish.

 

2012 Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Reviews

90 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

Aromas of forest floor, violet, red berry and a whiff of dark baking spice unfold in the glass while wild cherry, black raspberry, ground pepper and star anise drive the palate. Framed in firm, fine-grained tannins, this is a classic Tuscan red.

 

2011 Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Reviews

Aromas of underbrush, red berry, cooking spice and Mediterranean brush lead the nose on this structured, polished wine. The firm palate delivers wild cherry, tobacco, savory herb, white pepper and a balsamic note alongside supple tannins. Enjoy through 2018.

An opulent style, featuring black cherry, plum, earth and spice flavors. Full and complex, with fine balance and a lingering aftertaste of tobacco and spice. Best from 2015 through 2024.

#58 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013

This round version is laced with black cherry and raspberry fruit, showing hints of cocoa and spice. Firm tannins lend support, making this well-balanced overall, with a lingering finish of warm chocolate cake. Drink now through 2022.

Avignonesi’s Vino Nobile offers an alluring fragrance of rose petal and balsamic herbs along with cherry and spice accents.
