Description
 

Avi is the premier Sangiovese offering from San Patrignano. They select half of their best Sangiovese vines, which are trained in the guyot method with further selection on the sorting table, to produce the best expression of Sangiovese in the area.

Fermentation in stainless steel at controlled temperature, with periodical racking and long maceration on skins. 18 months in traditional 30-hectolitre Slavonian oak barrels and subsequent ageing in bottle for over a year.
Avi has garnet red color. The bouquet is broad
and features hints of violet, plum and Marasca cherry. The palate is elegant, with the structure and velvety tannins of Sangiovese typical of the terroir.
The pleasant sapidity leaves a finish with inviting hints of fruits of
the forest, leather and liquorice.

Not surprisingly, Avi received the Tre Bicchieri award seven times in the past ten years (including a Tre Bicchieri Plus for this particular vintage). Pair it with pizza, meaty pasta, cold cuts, dry & creamy cheeses, roasted pork, and sausages. Since 1978, San Patrignano has welcomed and rehabilitated over 18,000 socially marginalized individuals and drug addicts by financially supporting their recovery and educating them in a multitude of areas. Avi is the nickname of Vicenzo Muccioli, the founder of the San Patrignano nationally recognized community, which includes the winery, farm, nursery, and more.
