Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Lush, saturated and finessed, the ’12 bottling of 50 & 50 marries the acidic piquancy of its Sangiovese with the roundness of its Merlot. Sappy red and blue fruits mingle with crushed potpourri, warm cigar wrapper, baking spices, earth and pressed herbs in this delicious, caressing red. Beautifully balanced, this wine matches its overt fruit with bright acidity and fine-grained tannins, and it builds to a finish that’s laden with balsamic herbs, making it a food-friendly delight. This unique Super Tuscan is a blend of Merlot, grown in Montepulciano, and Sangiovese, grown in Chianti. Grapes ferment for about 20 days, and the wine ages in barriques for 18 to 24 months, one-third new, before bottling and resting for a year. The inaugural vintage of 50& 50 was 1988, a year so great that it moved Cappanelle’s original owner, Raffaele Rossetti, to create a Super Tuscan that celebrated the vintage in a special way; he did this by finding Merlot grown at Montepulciano’s Avignonesi, about fifty miles away.
