Occasional Wine Note: We stumbled on this in Rome when the restaurant had run out of Tignanello (a Super Tuscan in our Spring Reserve Club), and absolutely loved it. This is why the Italian's blend grow and blend Bordeaux grapes with their indigenous ones. Fantatastic blend of Merlot and Sangiovese that come together into these well balanced flavors and aromas of fruit and wood and spice. Like most Italian wines, this one's better with dinner.

    The Avignonesi & Capannelle 2016 50 & 50 represents a historic collaboration between two of Tuscany's iconic estates, one located near Montepulciano and the other in Gaiole in Chianti. An equal blend of Merlot and Sangiovese, this is a beautifully rich and determined wine with sharply delineated black fruit that veers towards Japanese plum, blackberry, spice and cured leather. Both grapes are persuaded to show their most elegant and soulful side in this classic vintage.

    Hints of cedar, balsamic, citrus and red cherry on the nose. Medium-to full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins that are fresh and vivid. Tight and reserved, but exciting at the same time. A wine made by Avignonesi and Capanelle.
