Grifi is a blend of two late ripening varieties, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Sangiovese is sourced from old vines
in Montepulciano, which produce a concentrated, elegant wine, and the Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our best vineyards
in Cortona, lending spice and power to the wine. The encounter of these two eminent, yet very different varieties from two
neighbouring, yet distinct growing areas, Montepulciano and Cortona, inspired Avignonesi to adopt the griffon icon for its
label, a creature made of two regal animals, the lion and the eagle

TASTING NOTES
Bright ruby red colour with aromas of ripe, red berry fruits, sweet cherries and undergrowth with underlying scents of
eucalyptus and nutmeg, intertwined with subtle hints of dark chocolate. The flavour is round and full-bodied, with a tightly
woven structure and an inviting, fruity core, leading to a long lingering, balsamic finish. Grifi 2013 is a wine perfect for long
ageing in the bottle.

AGEING
18 months in oak. Big and small woods for the Sangiovese, small woods for the
Cabernet Sauvignon.
