“Divine and superbly delicious.” Taste 98 points Robert Parker, Tuesday, November 6 at Siena

Here’s what Robert Parker Italian reviewer Monica Larner had to say about the 2001 Vin Santo by Avignonesi, just one of the wines we will be pouring at the Avignonesi Tuscan Wine Dinner on Tuesday, November 6. See menu and reservation details below.

Don’t miss this opportunity to taste one of Tuscany’s most rare and coveted wines!

Avignonesi 2001 Vino Santo di Montepulciano
98 points

The 2001 Vin Santo di Montepulciano (375 milliliters) is a divine and superbly delicious sweet blend of Trebbiano, Malvasia and Grechetto. The results are super concentrated and simmered down to a virtual reduction sauce of deliciousness. There are so many aromas to name, but some of the most evident highlights include candied orange peel, almond marzipan, caramel, toasted coffee bean, vanilla stick, mocha, dark honey and fragrant yellow rose. The mouthfeel is creamy, rich and deeply layered.
