Last ‘12 in my cellar, aged very well. The 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. Sangiovese/Merlot blend, aged in French Allier barriques, deep red with red fruit aromas and sweet spice. On the palate raspberry and sweet cherry flavors, tobacco, spice and soft tannins. Good balance, long finish ending with some earthy oak and mineral tones. Drink now.

The estate of Sette Ponti lies in the heart of the Chianti zone, fifteen miles northwest of the city of Arezzo just past the village of San Giustino Valdarno. Crognolo is aged in French Allier barriques. Deep red color with red fruit aromas and perfumed spice. On the palate raspberry and cherry flavors, some spice and dusty tannins. Good balance lingering finish ending with some oak and mineral tones.

Good little cousin of the Oreno. Tenuta Sette Ponti produces nice wines, but I don't think 2012 will show the best expression of the region. Maybe it just needs a bit of time on the shelf.

Ruby color. The wine smells like the Old World: leather, cherries, fresh fennel, deep woods, mahogany. Light-textured with pliant tannins and tea-sweetness. Glittery acidity and an orange flame give the finish a long tail. 13.5% abv | $35 (sample)
