The Sette Ponti Estate
From the producers of the fabulous super-Tuscan, Oreno! Crognolo is Sette Ponti's beautiful "entry level" wine. It is named after a wild bush Cornus, which grows on the estate. This blend of Sangiovese and Merlot from vines of an average age of 25 to 35 years
yields a refined, elegantly stylish wine of fruit forward lushness. The estate lies in the heart of the Chianti zone, fifteen miles northwest of the city of Arezzo just past the village of San Giustino Valdarno. Previously the property of the Princesses Margherita and Cristina Savoia d'Aosta, the core of the Sette Ponti estate was purchased in 1957 as a hunting retreat by architect Alberto Moretti, and is now the family property of Antonio Moretti, his son.
The Crognolo is truly an elegant, lovely wine. From one of my favorite Tuscan producers!
