Avignonesi 2007 Rosso

This modern day Super Tuscan blend with 40% Prugnolo Gentile; ( The Sangiovese clone renowed for being the main component of Vino Nobile De Montulpulciano), 30%  Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot has a rich black cherry soda hue with a wonderful nose of sweet briar and oak, a hint of musk and dried cranberries.   With moderately bright consistent fruit in the front and mild pleasant tannin that decipates quickly but elegantly, this wine with a hint of cigarbox in the mid palate and finish is extremely consistent.

Only thing missing with this surprisingly balanced young wine was a juicy medium rare T-Bine and a bowl of fresh tomato laced pasta as a perfect frequency of eucalyptis, clove and barnyard fill this Tuscan blend’s bouquet;   This wine is a gem at $12.99 

Keep Searching, Keep Believing and Keep DRINKING!     🙂
