James SucklingA firm and chewy young wine with chestnut, chocolate and oyster shell character. A blackberry undertone. Full body, polished and fresh. Drink now or hold in your cellar.
VinousThe 2015 Crognolo is a delicious, entry-level wine from Sette Ponti. Bright and punchy, with plenty of red fruit, spice and floral character, Crognolo is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years.
Wine AdvocateSangiovese and Merlot make up the 2015 Crognolo. The wine shows a dark appearance followed by long, flowing aromas of black fruit, spice and leather. This is a robust and nicely layered red blend that would stand up to meat roasts or lamb shanks. The wine is smooth and pleasing in texture. It drinks very nicely straight out of the gate. Drink date: 2017-2025.
Wine SpectatorFresh and enticing, with cherry, raspberry, tobacco and spice flavors. Firms up on the finish, where vegetal accents and tannins linger. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2023. 7,500 cases made.
