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 SucklingLots currants, blueberries, vanilla and floral character on the nose and palate. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Edgy contrast of acidity, ripe fruit and wood. Stylish, savory and delicious. A blend of sangiovese and merlot. One of the best values amongst Super Tuscan reds.
