Avignonesi Grifi 2012
50% cabernet sauvignon from Cortona and 50% Sangiovese from Montepulciano spend 15 months in barriques (10% new)
Bordeaux-like smell of Ripe black currant, black cherry, cigarbox, cedar, wood, toasted oak, earth, forest floor and black pepper
Med plus body
High fine grained tannins
Outstanding wine with long potential of ageing (10 years). Great Super Tuscan
Mouth is silky smooth with a medium (+) acidity and tannin with a strong flavour persistence and vanilla black cherries and blackberries jam with tobacco licorice and cocoa. Bit young.
