Made by Tenuta Sette Ponti, Crognolo is a rich and complex Super Tuscan red made from stony galestro limestone, sand and clay soils. A blend of mostly Sangiovese with a dollop of Merlot, the vines average 30 years and the wine is aged in French oak for 12-18 months. The estate lies in the heart of the Chianti zone, and Crognolo is named for a wild bush, Cornus, that grows on the estate. This wine has wonderful concentration and a multi-layered, velvety style. Thoughts of grilled Tuscan steaks with rosemary potatoes immediately leap to mind, as this big red will pair beautifully with hearty red meat dishes.

James SucklingAromas of rosewood, cherries and blueberries follow through to a full body, tight and focused tannins and a long and flavorful finish. This is linear and bright. The tannins are wonderfully polished and poised. Hard not to drink now, but it will improve beautifully in the bottle. A blend of mostly sangiovese with a touch of merlot. Drink or hold.
