Aromas of currants, flowers and orange blossom follow through to a full body with very fine tannins that are tight and polished. Beautiful length and polish. Better after 2021.
Wine Advocate 93
The Tenuta Sette Ponti 2018 Crognolo is mostly Sangiovese blended in with about 10 Merlot. This is a nicely balanced wine that offers the tangy freshness and acidity of the first grape ironed out and softened by that smaller percentage of the second. The wine is redolent of cherry, blackberry and plum. Its primary intensity is bright and cheerful. The finish shows pretty thickness, extraction and nicely integrated tannins.
Bright ruby red. Complex with a prevalence of small red fruits and floral notes. The body is beautifully balanced with a long finish.

You are literally delighted and captivated by the beauty and lush of the lands surrounding Tenuta Sette Ponti : 330 hectares of land, of which more than 50 planted with vineyards.
The vineyards of the estate don't have the mere presence of the best Sangiovese, but also some great "internationals", such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, along with a small selection of other varieties.
The soil composition also plays a determinant role in the quality of the wine, in Tenuta Sette Ponti it has a heterogeneous structure, well combined between clay, sand, limestone, and typical Chianti stone Galestro.
The vineyards are located at an altitude of about 300 meters above sea level.
