2015 Avignonesi and Capannelle 50/50 Tuscany image

A historic collaboration between Avignonesi from Montepulciano and Capannelle from Gaiole in Chianti, 50%50 brings forth all the silky elegance of the Merlot and the distinct, rustic charm of the Sangiovese.



 



(90 Points) The 2009 50 & 50 is the most successful expression in a mini vertical of the 2007, 2008 and 2009 vintages of this wine. The blend is Sangiovese and Merlot from two of Tuscany's icon wine estates. This vintage, and the warm sunshine that accompanied the early stages of the harvest, gives more room to the Merlot component of the wine especially on the bouquet. Soft cherry and blackberry is backed by exotic spice and leather. Sangiovese's acidity appears in the mouth and this wine should evolve nicely over the next ten years.  The Wine Advocate
