Deeply rich, ink staining colour with an intising nose of plum, blackcurrant, and herbs. The initial taste demonstrates the intensity of the Sangiovese while reflecting the softness of the Merlot in the blend. A slightly hollow mid-palate left me wondering if the Tuscan IGT might be experiencing at a lull at the moment, but the flavours returned for a lasting finish. I recommend cellaring this until 2014. Tasted Nov 2012

The 2009 Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo is a medium bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of dusty cherry, dates and woody notes. It has a good structure, refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a medium to long, smooth finish. Drink now to 2018. My impression: NICE, 89 pts. Tasted Dec/12.
