Food Pairings for Avignonesi Vin Santo
The Falvo brothers, who owned vineyards in the district of Cortona, took over Avignonesi in 1974 and invested heavily in the estate. They used indigenous grapes and also introduced international varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir. Today, Avignonesi has 115 hectares of vineyard split between four estates. Two of the estates, Le Capezzine and I Poggetti, are situated in the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano zone, while the other two, La Selva and La Lombarda, are located further to the east in the Cortona D.O.C. zone. Grapes for the Vin Santo were selected from various vineyards on the La Selva estate. Amber in colour, the Vin Santo has an intense and luscious perfume of dried fruits, spices and vanilla. On the palate it is unctuous, rich and full-bodied, with persistent length and balanced acidity.
