Crognolo Super Tuscan 2019
Try this ridiculously well-priced deal on for size winelovers! The Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo Super Tuscan. Get lots, and get it fast because you won't see this kind of price on this caliber of wine often... Ripe, dark berry flavors, beautifully smooth tannins, and a hint of flowers all come together in a full body that's made for meats any way you like them. Summon your inner Italian and enjoy your first glass of this truly Super Tuscan with crostata of radicchio with smoked mozzarella, balsamic vinegar and prosciutto. Osso buco which has braised for a nice, long time with tomatoes and olives will be perfect with this Italian red. Don't forget the gremolata. If you're thinking about a roasted meat dish, we highly recommend Arista alla Fiorentina, a Tuscan-style pork roast which is rubbed and stuffed with minced garlic and fresh rosemary, sea salt and fresh pepper. If it's your turn to host Sunday dinner, get the recipe for Nona's ragu, cook up some pasta, and put a giant bowl on the table so that everyone can dive in. Whichever you choose, just be sure you have enough of this Tenuta Sette Ponti to go around or there might be trouble... Buon appetito!
James Suckling: "Sweet berries, flowers and cedar on the nose. Some leather, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with lightly chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Shows tension and brightness. Excellent structure. Drinkable now, but better in 2023." July 2021
Winery: "Bright ruby red. Complex with a prevalence of small red fruits and floral notes.The body is beautifully balanced with a long finish. Delicious with full flavored meats and roasts."
