Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo 2011

Sku: 018919

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.

Wine maker notes
Intense ruby red colour is the prelude to a full bouquet of ripe cherry and berries well blended with spicy notes that give class and complexity. Full bodied, well balanced and vibrant on the palate, well rounded tannins and depth.

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.

Food pairing
Full flavoured meats, game and roasts
