Winemaker Notes

50&50 has a deep, dark ruby red color with purple hues. In the nose it shows a fragrance of small red fruits, black currant, black cherry and blueberry which then leave room for harmonious nuances of undergrowth and sweet spices such as vanilla. In the mouth it is satisfying and sweetness and tannins are perfectly combined in a wide, elegant, decisive and round taste symphony. Ripe fruit and spices return and the aftertaste releases its balsamic mint and thyme. The finish is long and soft.

Blend: 50% Merlot, 50% Sangiovese

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
Blackberries with some black cherries and violets on the nose. Medium-to full-bodied with creamy, tight tannins and a fresh, shy finish. This is always a little tight. Try after 2023.

Avignonesi, Italy
Avignonesi Winery Video

The estate, which bears the name of a noble family from Montepulciano, was taken over in 2009 by the Belgian Virginie Saverys. In a decade, under her leadership, Avignonesi has become the largest regenerative wine estate in Italy. Out of respect for workers, consumers and the environment, Virginie Saverys has banned highly toxic synthetic biocides - alas too widespread in the wine world - which poison populations, soils, air and water. Concurrently, the cellar has forbidden the use of yeasts, dyes, enzymes, tannins and other industrial biochemical adjuvants. Finally, Avignonesi is vigorously pursuing an energy transition policy to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions drastically. Avignonesi is a benefit company and is a certified B Corporation. We are part of a global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. 

Convinced that there are no great wines without good grapes, Virginie focused her efforts on rehabilitating viticulture while giving the cellar a more supervisory than interventionist role.

Beyond giving nature back her rights, Avignonesi also fosters the authenticity of its products. Virginie Saverys and her team have developed a modern style of refreshing, fruit-driven wine where elegance prevails. In short, wines that are a pleasure to drink.

Avignonesi owns about 434 acres of fully certified organic and biodynamic vineyards. All wines are vegan and are made exclusively with grapes cultivated on the estate.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
