50&50 Toscana IGT

50&50 Toscana IGT - Cover

Description

5 0&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 as an experiment, almost by chance: during a jovial dinner the former owners of the two wineries started to compare, mix and match their wines, and came up with the even blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Merlot, that we know today. They had given birth to something truly unique.
