50&50

1988 was such an exceptional vintage in Tuscany that Raffaele Rossetti decided to carry out his project of creating a unique wine, blending Capannelle Sangiovese with a Tuscan Merlot. The Merlot chosen was the Merlot produced by Avignonesi Winery in Montepulciano. 50&50 was born.

About us

Company details

The history of Capannelle started in 1974 when the businessman Raffaele Rossetti moved to a 16th century Villa surrounded by 10.5 hectares of land in Gaiole in Chianti, homeland to Chianti Classico.
After a deep analysis of the area and soil, a new vineyard of 3.5 hectares was planted using only local grapes such as Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino and Malvasia while two more hectares were planted with olive trees.

In the meantime, the Villa was undergoing renovation. Raffaele Rossetti decided to create a proper tasting room with original furniture including a masterpiece, a six-meter-long table, and a new modern kitchen where famous chefs have been pairing since then traditional and innovative recipes with Capannelle wines. A modern cellar was needed as well and it was built with cutting-edge technologies.
The first label was released in 1975: it was a Table Wine named simply Capannelle. Despite its “simplicity”, this wine was able to conquer the critics and market attention, becoming a symbol of quality, thanks to a careful management of vineyards and the use of modern technologies in the cellar. French oak barrels were introduced in wine aging in 1977 creating a style which would become a must in just a few years. White wine making was approached in 1986 and in 1988 Capannelle released its first white wine, a Chardonnay fermented and aged in barrel.
