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.

Aromas 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.

The 2016 Crognolo is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot aged in tonneaux and neutral barrique for up to 14 months. This is a tight and elegantly streamlined wine that sports a very attractive mid-weight style. The wine opens to aromas of red cherry, plum, toasted almond and crushed granite or stone. This vintage is both balanced and bright. Some 130,000 bottles were made.

Bright, bursting with black cherry, plum, leather, menthol and spice flavors. Smooth and harmonious, with fine grip on the earth- and mineral-tinged finish. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2028. 7,500 cases made.
