Winemaker Notes

A deep ruby color with a bouquet reminiscent of ripe cherries and wild fruits, well-integrated spice and complexity. Harmonious to the palate, and vibrant shows depth and perfect tannic texture.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Very silky and fine, with currant and berry on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with a wonderful mouthfeel. Clean, fresh and direct. Best after 2011.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Crognolo is very pretty in this vintage. A persistent vein of minerality frames dark, jammy fruit in a medium-bodied, impeccably refined style for this property. Over time the wine’s inner perfume emerges, adding scents of roses, violets all things floral. A long, clean finish adds freshness. Crognolo is Sangiovese with a dollop of Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Mostly sangiovese, this includes a small percentage of merlot, the original blend that Carlo Ferrini made from Alerto Morretti's estate northwest of Arezzo. It's light, bright and elegant, the black cherry flavors expanding into the finish. A generous wine on a light frame, this will match a plate of salumi.

Tenuta Sette Ponti, Italy

The estate of Sette Ponti lies in the heart of the Chianti zone, fifteen miles northwest of the city of Arezzo just past the village of San Giustino Valdarno. The Via del Monte, known locally as the Via dei Sette Ponti, leads into a beautiful hidden valley and to the estate. The name Sette Ponti, or "seven bridges," refers to the seven bridges crossing the Arno River on the road from Arezzo to Florence. Erected in the mid 13th century, it took nearly forty years to build, and is perceptible in the right far background of Leonardo DaVinci's Mona Lisa.

Tenuta Sette Ponti, is, like many Tuscan estates, multi-faceted. The 750-acre property supports livestock and mixed agriculture, and although viticulture is not new to the estate, winemaking is; the yield of the property's vineyards was until 1997 sold to various respected Tuscan wine producers, among them Piero Antinori. Dr. Moretti's enjoyment of wine led him to ask Antinori if the estate vineyards could produce great wines, and Antinori thought they could. The estate has since been transformed through the consultation of respected oenologist Carlo Ferrini and his assistant, Gioia Cresti; Gilbert Bouvet, one of France's most skilled viticulturalists; and agronomist Benedetto d'Anna.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
