50&50

Toscana I.G.T.


F rom the friendship that links the owners of Avignonesi in Montepulciano and Capannelle in Chianti comes our sought after 50&50 wine. The first vintage of 50&50 was 1988: during a jovial dinner the former owners of the two wineries started to compare their wines, and came up with this exceptional blend of 50% Sangiovese from Capannelle and 50% Merlot from Avignonesi. Legend in a bottle.
50&50 has a deep, ruby red color. Aromas of dried cranberries and black cherries intertwine with scents Mediterranean herbs and sweet spices. The flavour is rich, enveloping and long lingering with a long and balsamic finish. This elegant blend of Merlot and Sangiovese is perfect for long ageing in the bottle.
