Avignonesi & Capannelle 50&50 2017 Tuscany 12 Litre (Balthazar)
50&50 is a wine sprung from the friendship which binds the owners of Avignonesi in Montepulciano and Capannelle in Chianti Classico. The first vintage was 1988 and it was born as an experiment, almost by chance: during a 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. This wine has been matured in French Oak barriques for 24 months.
This is a 12 litre bottle also know as a Balthazar bottle, the equivalent of 16 regular bottles of wine!
Large-format bottles are great for extended ageing periods due to the wine's slower rate of maturation.
Please note that due to the additional weight, there shall be a shipping charge equivalent to 16 bottles applied to this lot.
This bottles is complete with its original wooden case.
