Tenuta Sette Ponti is an estate in Tuscany, just east of the Chianti Classico zone. It makes a range of wines under the IGT Toscana designation, including Oreno, a Bordeaux Blend, and Crognolo, a Sangiovese-predominant wine with a small amount of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
This is perfumed, sinewy and taut, boasting cherry, black currant, earth, wild herb and tobacco aromas and flavors. The tannins are assertive, but this shows balance overall, as well as a saline mineral element on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2017 through 2026. 9,000 cases made. — BS
