Description

The Tenuta Sette Ponti has become famous for producing the opulent and rich Oreno Super Tuscan. But their very affordable Second wine is a perpetual over achiever! The fabulous Super Tuscan blend, Crognolo is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot from their hillside vineyards in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone. 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 ideal terroir for the Sangiovese grape. Yields are kept low with a green harvest in May and the grapes are carefully hand sorted in the winery for a slow 20 day maceration. Aging is in French Allier oak barrels for 14 months.James Suckling scored this 94 points saying “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.” 750 ml
