Bright ruby red color with aromas of violets, raspberries, red currants and sweet cherries with underlying hints of licorice and cumin. The taste is warm and full-bodied with fine, long tannins and a long, spicy finish. 16 months in French barriques, new oak for the Cabernet Sauvignon and 2nd and 3rd year for the Sangiovese. 15% ABV.

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 neighboring, 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.
