Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo 2004
from Tuscany, Italy
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.

A Customer - Far West Texas
I finally drank the 2003 Crognolo that I recieved in a "Build Your Cellar Wine Club" shipment. I decanted it about an hour and a half before drinking, which immediately exposed a heady bouquet of dark fruit. We drank it with home-made spaghetti and meatballs. Over the course of the meal it began communicating in spicy undertones, then danced a sexy burlesque, the Sangiovese harmonizing the acidity of the tomato sauce while undressing the spicy bits, all perfectly balanced. Enough to make you savor the prose of a meal you have eaten a thousand times but just discovered how it tastes.
