Crognolo 2021

Crognolo, the first wine of Tenuta Sette Ponti. Born in 1998 from the wine project of the Moretti Cuseri family. An elegant Sangiovesebased supertuscan, endowed with a unique identity: between enhancement of territory and vines, excellence, rigor and innovation made from a tradition capable of evolving. The best selection of a historic variety of Sangiovese from a unique clone found in the Vigna dell’Impero 1935 and multiplied in the estate’s Sangiovese vineyards. A small addition of Merlot to give roundness and complexity. The ruby red color is a prelude to an intense and complex nose, rich in red fruits such as cherries and berries, floral notes such as violets, herbs and spicy notes, giving class and elegance. Structured, complex, mineral and round, it suggests excellent aging capabilities. The name comes from a wild plant “the cornus” that grows abundantly on the estate.
Vintage Notes

After some winter rains and a few windy days, winter gives way to spring, which is usually intense and early, distinguished by high temperatures that, after the vines are planted, help the buds to swell quickly, developing homogeneous shoots and rich clusters, ready for flowering in a few weeks. The microclimate is always optimal, distinguished by the wind rising from the sea light and constant, intense sunshine without fluctuating temperatures, few rains wet the vineyards, lush and balanced, bringing the desired phenolic ripening to fruition. It promises to be a vintage of great depth, determined by the quality of the tannin, which gives a rich, concentrated wine but with hints of freshness.
