From 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 red berry fruits and black cherries intertwine with scents of sweet tobacco and Mediterranean herbs. The flavour is rich, enveloping and long lingering with lots of ripe fruit and warm notes of baking spices. This elegant blend of Merlot and Sangiovese is perfect for long ageing in the bottle.
