SETTE PONTI Crognolo 2015

See the wine detail page

91 Points

Another rich sangiovese. This one with ten percent merlot is barrique-aged and from the acclaimed 2015 vintage, needs another five years to settle into itself. Despite the tannin and austerity there is a tangy freshness with spicy, cherry, earthy, tobacco notes that should ensure cellar time. A wild look at sangiovese you could serve now with grilled meats and mushrooms, but three to five years ageing would be a good plan too.
