Italy - Tuscany
Merlot - Cabernet Sauvignon - Petit Verdot
Red - Vintage: 2017 - Size: 750 ml.
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.
A big, brawny red, this delivers flavors of black cherry, plum and spice, with hints of wild rosemary. Ends with a dry feel and lightly astringent tannins that may upset the balance as this ages, but stays fresh overall. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2028. 5,500 cases made, 1,500 cases imported. — BS
