Tasting Notes

The joint project of Capannelle and Avignonesi, the 1999 50 & 50 (50% Sangiovese from the Capannelle vineyard and 50% Merlot from the Avignonesi vineyard) may be expensive, but the results are stunning. The opaque purple color is followed by a sweet perfume of espresso, blackberries, black currants, high quality toasty oak, and mocha. This medium to full-bodied, dense, opulently-textured blend possesses copious extract, a boatload of tannin, and a huge finish. For its size and stature, everything is in balance, it just needs time to develop secondary nuances. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020.

Provenance

This collection is a small part of a 10,000+ bottle cellar that has been meticulously kept at perfect temperature and humidity. Iron Gate has personally known this client for 10 years and even assisted in originally setting up this cellar when it was originally built by one of the top wine cellar designers in Toronto. Inventory was managed with an eSommelier system and to say that ultimate, almost obsessive care was taken in storing these wines would be un understatement. The collector himself is well connected in the wine world and always purchased from top producers and/or futures. The sale is a result of a migration to Burgundy in his drinking habits.
