Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo 2011

Clay and sand soils as well as Tuscany’s special stony galestro limestone, combined with ideal sun exposure and a climate tempered by the Mediterranean, provide an ideal climate for the Sangiovese grape. Low yields of excellent-quality hand harvested fruit ensure a rich and concentrated result. Following hand sorting and destemming, grapes are fermented in a combination of temperature controlled and lined open-top tanks. Crognolo is aged in French Allier barriques and in bottle.

Tasting notes
This refined, stylish blend of Sangiovese and Merlot combines fruit lushness and concentration with a palate of ripe wild cherries, black fruit, leather and vanilla repeated in the aromas. Firm, elegant tannins and integrated oak end in a balanced finish.

Rating
Wine Spectator, 90Points
Violet,black currant and cherry aromas highlight this lush, fruity red. Harmonious and well-structured, with a long finish of spice and tobacco. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2015 through 2022.

James Suckling, 95 Points
Impressive aromas of blackberries, currants and flowers follow to a full body with super fine tannins and a long, long finish. Super classy. Best ever Crognolo. Always great value. 90% sangiovese and 10% merlot.


Wine maker notes
Intense ruby red in color, the wine has a fruity, spicy bouquet and ripe cherry and berries on the palate. It has the vivid acidity typical of Sangiovese, with well-integrated tannins and an earthy finish.

Delicious with beef or rich pork dishes, roasts and hearty stews.


Technical notes
For lovers of big Tuscan wines, the Crognolo is a winner. This Sangiovese-based red is intense ruby red in color with a fruity, spicy bouquet and ripe cherry and berries on the palate. Aged in French Allier barriques and in bottle, it has a polished finish. Pair it with hearty ragu-sauced pastas, meats, game and sturdy cheese.
