Tenuta Sette Ponti

Crognolo Toscana IGT 2017 play

Region: Italy / Tuscany
Grapes: 100% Sangiovese

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 an ideal climate for the Sangiovese grape. Low yields of excellent-quality hand harvested fruit ensure a rich and concentrated result. Following hand sorting and destemming, grapes are fermented in a combination of temperature-controlled and lined open-top tanks. Lots are blended first when the wine is placed in barriques and again at the first racking. Crognolo is aged for 10 - 14 months in French Allier barriques and 5 - 6 months in bottle.

harvest note

Tuscany experienced a fairly frigid winter, in absence of snow and rains below average. The vegetative growth has been anticipated by a surprising spring, very hot and untimely. Given the hot temperatures, the flowering took place quickly and without interference. The season continued with high temperatures for some periods of the summer, alternating some rains. The vineyards, which enjoy a good maturity and an excellent balance during all the phases of the year, well endured the dry season. Sangiovese, which could be prone to damage caused by drought, did not suffer thanks to irrigations, taking water from the two lakes inside the estate. September started with sunny days alternated with some rains which brought to a very good technological and phenolic maturity which was able to guarantee structured and elegant wines, faithful expression of the vintage.

tasting note

Bright ruby red. Complex with a prevalence of small red fruits and floral notes. The body is beautifully balanced with a long finish.

Delicious with full flavored meats and roasts.
