Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo 2013

Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo 750ML 2013      
Sku: 13153

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.

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. Better in 2016. (9/ 2013) - 95 points James Suckling

Wine maker notes
Intense ruby red in color with a fruity, spicy bouquet and ripe cherry and berries on the palate. Delicious with full-flavored meats, game and roasts.
