Cortona Syrah 2017

Love the northern Rhône nose. Less flavor depth than the last time I tried this, but could be just the vintage. I wonder how many tasters could pick this out of a St. Joseph lineup? — 5 months ago

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Crognolo Toscana Sangiovese 2017

Estate of Sette Ponti lies in the heart of the Chianti zone, 15 miles northwest of the city of Arezzo, past the village of San Giustino Valdarno. Crognolo, aged in French Allier barriques, deep Ruby with red fruit aromas and floral notes. On the palate blackberry and sweet cherry flavors, blossom notes, spice and fine dusty tannins. Good balance, long finish ending with some oak and mineral tones. Nice! Aging well, recommend decant for an hour first. — 2 months ago

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Oreno Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2014

Tried twice recently, Sette Ponti or "seven bridges," refers to 7 bridges crossing Arno River on road from Arezzo to Florence. Blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cab Sauv & 10% Petit Verdot, aged 18 months, new French oak. Had ‘14 while ago, now opening nicely. Dark Ruby with pronounced aromas of dark fruits, cigar box & earthy notes, touch of citrus. Flavors of cherry & plum with tobacco & spice. Fine chewy tannins, long finish ending with tobacco & mineral spice as the finish builds. Nice! Will continue to age! — 4 days ago
