50&50 has a deep, dark ruby colour. The 2010 vintage is elegant and refined, with fresh notes of red and black berries, backed up by sweet spices and an underlying, balsamic touch. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and silky soft, with an elegant, fruity core and a long lingering, pleasantly dry finish. A wine for long ageing in the bottle.

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.
There's plenty of muscle in this red, with a dense texture supporting plum, black currant and herb flavors. Accents of oak gather steam on the fresh, lingering finish. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2018 through 2026. –BS
