CAPOVERSO

Capoverso, which literally means ‘new beginning’, is a tiny estate outside Montepulciano, single-handedly owned and operated by Adriana Avignonesi della Lucilla.

Using her extensive winemaking background, and following the sale of her family’s famous Avignonesi estate nearby, Adriana now farms the 11 hectare Capoverso wine estate and creates beautifully nuanced wines of which she is justifiably proud.

Thick in consistency, with aromas and flavors of dried fig, espresso, macadamia nut and raisin. Intensely sweet, offering lingering accents of leather and cigar. For all the unctuousness, this stays balanced and finishes clean.Armit Wines

CAPOVERSO WINES

The oldest vines at the Capoverso winery are 35 years old and produce wines which are very elegant, pure expressions of Sangiovese. There are plantings of a few local varieties as well as Syrah in the DOC Cortona. Capoverso also produces a superb Vin Santo – a wine on which the Avignonesi family made their name. The lengthy, painstaking work it takes to produce this rare wine is truly astonishing and few wineries make a Vin Santo of this quality.

In addition to her talents in the winery producing Capoverso wines, Adriana is also a proficient artist. She designs all the eye-catching labels herself, having formerly created the well-known labels of Donnafugata. Each one tells the story of this independent, inspiring lady and her wonderful wines.
