Felice Lunedi winelovers!! We wanted to kick off your week with a ridiculously well-priced deal - 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... It's bursting with ripe, dark fruit flavors, beautifully smooth tannins, and woodsy notes which 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. The combination will leave you wanting more. Osso buco which has braised for a nice long time with tomatoes and olive 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 for everyone to devour. 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: "Aromas of rosewood, cherries and blueberries follow through to a full body, tight and focused tannins and a long and flavorful finish. This is linear and bright. The tannins are wonderfully polished and poised. Hard not to drink now, but it will improve beautifully in the bottle. A blend of mostly Sangiovese with a touch of Merlot. Drink or hold." Sep 2018

Winery:  "Bright ruby red. Complex with a prevalence of small red fruits and floral notes. The body is beautifully balanced with a long finish."
