Desiderio DOC 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Ein Bouquet von aussergewöhnlichem Nuancenreichtum und besonderer Dichte zeichnet den Desiderio aus. In der Nase entfalten sich vielfältige Noten: Tabak, Vanille, Röstaromen, reife Früchte, Gewürznoten. Im Gaumen überwiegen Komplexität und Gehalt. Der Sinneseindruck im Finale ist anhaltend, vielschichtig und ausgewogen. Ein herrlich strukturierter Rotwein aus der Toskana mit einem ausgezeichneten Alterungspotential.

Avignonesi consists of four wine-producing estates: Le Capezzine, I Poggetti, La Selva and La Lombarda. In total they comprise 225 hectares of open ground, 109 ha of vineyards and 3 ha of olive groves. Fattoria "Le Capezzine" (altitude m 300) Only a few kilometres from Montepulciano, close to the village of Valiano, stands the old farm estate Le Capezzine. It is the heart of the company and it has been impeccably restored. It contains spacious cellars for vinification, cellars for ageing and storing, the vinsantaia, the frantoio (the olive oil mill), warehouses and offices. The estate comprises 19 hectares, of which 7 hectares of vineyards divided as follows: 6 (Prugnolo Gentile) of albarello vines in the "settonce" pattern; 1 dedicated to density experimentation ranging from 2,000 to 8,500 vines per hectare with six different rootstocks; finally 0,4 hectares are dedicated to growing ancient varieties indigenous to Montepulciano and the surrounding area. Estate "I Poggetti" (altitude m 290) This estate is composed of two farms, all located within the boundary of Montepulciano, on the Argiano hills, where Avignonesi’s Vino Nobile has always been produced. The total land area is 68 hectares, 30 of which are used to cultivate Prugnolo Gentile, Mammolo and Canaiolo. Two hectares are planted with the Correggiolo variety of olives which are used to produce the green and aromatic extravirgin olive oil typical of Montepulciano. Estate "La Selva" (altitude m 300) La Selva is situated at Cignano, on the hills of the Chiuso di Cortona and consists of 4 farms - La Selva, Val di Capraia, Paggino and Pian dell’Oca, four superior locations dedicated to the cultivation of classical vine varieties. It covers a total area of 96 hectares, 51 of which are vineyards and 1 olive groves. Here are grown the Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc. Estate "La Lombarda" (altitude m 300) This is a 42-hectare farm located close to Le Capezzine and within the uncontaminated countryside of the Chiuso della Valdichiana hills. The soil here is particularly well suited to vine growing. At the moment there are 20 hectares of new vineyards at high density, dedicated to Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Nero and Merlot. Read less

Fairly oaky aromas dominate the glass though there are some bright, jammy fruit tones intermixed with the vanilla, cedar and cigarbox tones. In the mouth this is big and chewy with lots of youthful raw material. The mid-palate reveals some gently leafy black currant fruit spiced with cinnamon and milk chocolate tones that leads to a nice, fresh perfumed finish. This is a big wine that shows impressive balance at this young stage but continues to be quite marked by oak. 89pts
