50&50 Avignonesi, Tasting notes:
Opens with aromas of ripe fruit with black and red berries, followed by hints of Mediterranean herbs and sweet spices. On the palate it is rich and persistent with a long, balsamic finish.
Avignonesi, winery in Val di Chiana
The producer, Avignonesi extend in the Montepulciano and Cortona areas (in the Val di Chiana in the province of Arezzo) ensuring a diversified spectrum of soils that allows the production of a Vino Nobile di Montepulciano that authentically expresses the complexity of the terroir, while the Val di Chiana is suitable for the cultivation of other grape varieties such as Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
50% Montepulciano 50% Chianti:
From the friendship that binds the owners of Avignonesi in Montepulciano and Capannelle in Chianti, comes their sought-after 50&50 wine. The first vintage of the 50&50 was 1988: during a jovial dinner, the owners of the two cellars began to compare their wines and obtained this exceptional blend of 50% Sangiovese di Capannelle and 50% Merlot di Avignonesi. The legend in a bottle.
