Avignonesi Capannelle 50&50 Toscana IGT, Tuscany, Italy 2016

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.

"The Avignonesi & Capannelle 2016 50 & 50 represents a historic collaboration between two of Tuscany's iconic estates, one located near Montepulciano and the other in Gaiole in Chianti. An equal blend of Merlot and Sangiovese, this is a beautifully rich and determined wine with sharply delineated black fruit that veers towards Japanese plum, blackberry, spice and cured leather. Both grapes are persuaded to show their most elegant and soulful side in this classic vintage." Wine Advocate 94
