Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo 2021


Tenuta Sette Ponti is a historic estate in Chianti in the heart of Tuscany. The estate has an incredible history unlike anybody else’s as it was first planted by Prince Amedeo of Savoy-Aosta and Viceroy of Ethiopia in 1935 to celebrate conquering the Ethiopian Empire. The vineyard was originally labeled “Vigna dell’Impero” (Vineyard of the Empire) and is home to a very famous, ancient Sangiovese clone which is the only of its kind.

A few decades later – the property was bought by Architect Alberto Moretti Cuseri from the Princess (the daughter of Prince Amedeo). He immediately began transforming the enormous 750 acre property into the marvel it is today.

Vineyards, acres of livestock roaming around and a ton of mixed agriculture, now make up this enormous estate. Wine production only started in the 1990’s, but it found immediate success and has done wonders to spread the legacy of Tenuta Sette Ponti.

Today, they are known for their work with Reds and Sangiovese especially. The ‘Crognolo’, today’s offer, was the first label at this historic estate. It’s made from the clones from the estate’s oldest vineyard, and helped drive the reputation here as one of the nation’s best producers. That was furthered by the release of the ‘Oreno’ a wine widely considered one of the best Tuscany bottlings of any kind.

95 Points, James Suckling
The purity of fruit is impressive in this wine with currants, orange peel, peaches and lemon in the nose and on the palate. Full-bodied yet compressed and agile. Flavorful finish. Reserved now, but if you give it a year or two it will really deliver.

93 Points, Wine Enthusiast
Ultra fresh juicy cherries with more delicate aromas of violets and rose petals on the nose roll onto a palate rich with more cherries and berries balanced by earthy, astringent notes of soil, branches and roots and a finish of bitter cocoa and anise.
