Supertuscan 50&50 TOSCANA I.G.T.
50&50 is a wine sprung from the friendship which binds the owners of Avignonesi in Montepulciano and Capannelle in Chianti Classico.
The first vintage of 50&50 was 1988 and it was born almost by chance during a jovial dinner and came up with the even blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Merlot.

    This round version is laced with black cherry and raspberry fruit, showing hints of cocoa and spice.
    Firm tannins lend support, making this well-balanced overall, with a lingering finish of warm chocolate cake. —BS

    Lively and fruity, with dried berry, black cherry and spices on the nose and palate.
