Compared to 2013, this 2014 is elegant. Intense ruby red in color, the wine has a fruity, spicy bouquet and ripe cherry and berries on the palate. It has the vivid acidity typical of Sangiovese, with well-integrated tannins and an earthy finish. It stands out on its own against earlier vintages. To us, Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo remains one of the best valued Super-Tuscan made from Sangiovese.
Delicious with full flavored meats, game and roasts.

Bright and aromatic with rose, blueberry and currant character. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and a beautiful finish. Such finesse and beauty. Impressive for the vintage.

The 2014 Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo shows how vivid and beautiful Sangiovese can be. The wine expresses bright currants, with a hint of savory spices. Drinks well now with roast chicken.(Tasted: September 12, 2016, San Francisco, CA) "
