Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo 2016
We have the superb 2016 Sette Ponti Crognolo at $24.99 per bottle! That is one of the lowest prices in the country!
The owner of the winery once told me that one reason he makes such special wines is the fact that he is so successful in his other business that he doesn't need to make any money from the winery. His other business is Prada! That advantage shows to great effect in the 2016 vintage. A blend of Sangiovese and a bit of Merlot, it is full-bodied and rich, with soft caressing tannins and a long and layered finish. At $24.99, it is a no-brainer!
James Suckling agrees and rates it 95 points, saying: "wonderfully polished and poised... will improve beautifully in the bottle. Drink or hold. 95 points."
Serve with a grilled ribeye steak with olive oil and rosemary (let me know if you need a recipe) for a match made in heaven.
