About Cantina Avignonesi
Montepulciano is a small village in the province of Siena, Italy. Hills characterize the region. The grapes mature slowly in the higher parts of the region, this process makes the wines more subtle and elegant. This region was important in the Renaissance, and in the 19th century the wines produced in this region received the nickname “Vino Nobile di Montepulciano” because many rich nobles drank Montepulciano wines.
The Tuscany is the cultural, and culinary heart of Italy. It also produces high quality wines. The sangiovese grape is able to ripe perfectly here. It is a grape which gives full and interesting wines a deep red colour.
