Capoverso | Estate based in the commune of Montepulciano (Vino Nobile) in Tuscany. Capoverso was started in 2000 by Adriana Avignonesi della Lucilla (the former wife of one of the Avignonesi family). She decided to use her former experience to create a new company able to represent her own wine philosophy. Red wines are made under the Cortona DOC and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG.
