Sette Ponti Crognolo 2008

Tuscany, ItalyA delicious and affordable super-Tuscan blend of 80/10/10 sangiovese, merlot and cabernet sauvignon grown on clay over galestro limestone. Crognolo takes its name from the Cornus bush, that grows on the property, is aged for 12 to 18 months in French Allier barriques and 6 months in bottle before release. A cool year has produced an aromatic thread in this mineral, cool, red fruit-flavoured wine with earthy undertones and fine-grained tannins. You can cellar this for five years or serve it now with rich, warm, fall and winter stews and roasts.Tasted: 05 October 2012Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
