Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo 2002
from Tuscany, Italy
"Rich and complex aromas of ripe fruit, spices and black licorice. Full-bodied and silky, with beautiful fruit and a long, long finish. Refined and well made. Sette Ponti does it again. Best after 2002."
Tenuta Sette Ponti's first release was the 1998 vintage Crognolo, named after a wild bush, Cornus, which grows on the estate. The blend of Sangiovese and Merlot from vines of an average age of 25 to 35 years yields a refined, elegantly stylish wine of fruit forward lushness. The wine's dense color suggests a concentration confirmed on the palate along with sweet ripe flavors of wild cherries, black fruit, leather and vanilla also evident in the aromas. The wine is firmly structured yet elegant, with good tannic support and well-integrated oak notes, leaving an overall impression of harmony, balance and length.

The blend of Sangiovese and Merlot yields a refined, elegantly stylish wine. The flavors of wild cherries, black fruit, leather and vanilla also evident in the aromas. The wine is firmly structured yet elegant, with good tannic support. On a more personal note it was a perfect compliment my Rosemary encrusted Prime rib. Smooth finish. All in all a great wine.
