Aromas of currants, flowers and orange blossom follow through to a full body with very fine tannins that are tight and polished. Beautiful length and polish. Better after 2021.

This is a nicely balanced wine that offers the tangy freshness and acidity of the first grape ironed out and softened by that smaller percentage of the second. The wine is redolent of cherry, blackberry and plum. Its primary intensity is bright and cheerful. The finish shows pretty thickness, extraction and nicely integrated tannins.- ML

A beam of bright cherry permeates this round, supple red. Raspberry, earth, iron and tobacco notes play supporting roles, while dusty tannins prevail on the finish. Sangiovese. Drink now through 2032. 12,500 cases made...   A beam of bright cherry permeates this round, supple red.

Label

Crognolo, the first label produced at Tenuta Sette Ponti, is an elegant wine named after a wild bush, Cornus, that grows abundantly on the estate. It is made predominantly from Sangiovese, a traditional Tuscan variety that produces elegant and age-worthy wines, with a small amount of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Crognolo unites the class of Sangiovese with the complexity bestowed by oak aging.

Intense ruby red color leads to a full bouquet of ripe cherry and berries, well blended with spicy notes that give class and complexity. It is full bodied, well balanced and vibrant on the palate, and has well rounded tannins and depth.

Winery

Sette Ponti

Tenuta Sette Ponti sits in the land of Sangiovese and Chianti, not far from the historic town of Arezzo. The estate received its name from Antonio F. Moretti, who wanted to pay homage to the so-called Road Sette Ponti (Seven Bridges), which connects the banks of the River Arno between Florence and Arezzo.

Tenuta Sette Ponti holds 330 hectares of land, of which more than 50 are planted with vineyards—tended entirely without mechanization. Included are Sangiovese, but also some great "internationals", such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and a small selection of other varieties. The soil composition has a heterogeneous structure, well combined between clay, sand, limestone, and typical Chianti stone Galestro.

The grapes undergo a “one by one” manual selection when they arrive in the cellars. An open vat fermentation is preferred along with a gentle pressing to get the best aroma from the grapes without bitterness or excessive drying.
