50 & 50 2017 - Capannelle e Avignonesi
The 1988 harvest was extraordinary for Tuscany, an event that prompted Raffaele Rossetti to want to realize an innovative idea by combining the Sangiovese di Capannelle with a Merlot grown in Tuscany. Merlot produced by the Avignonesi di Montepulciano company is selected. Thus a great red wine was born on 50 & 50.
Very bright ruby, it anticipates perfumes of violet and rose petals. Taste of impeccable elegance and freshness, with velvety tannins, counterbalanced by a silky softness. With a long and satisfying finish, sublimated by a perfect taste-olfactory roundness. Intense nose, with hints of cherry and red fruits. Innovative and balanced, with strong aromas, sweet tannins.
