Winery Notes:
GRAPES: 80% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Clay and sand soils as well as Tuscany’s special stony galestro limestone, combined with ideal sun exposure and a climate tempered by the Mediterranean, provide an ideal climate for the Sangiovese grape. Low yields of excellent-quality hand harvested fruit ensure a rich and concentrated result. Following hand sorting and destemming, grapes are fermented in a combination of temperature-controlled and lined open-top tanks. Lots are blended first when the wine is placed in barriques and again at the first racking. Crognolo is aged for 12 to 18 months in French Allier barriques and 6 months in bottle.

TASTING NOTE
Intense ruby red in color, the wine has a fruity, spicy bouquet and ripe cherry and berries on the palate. It has the vivid acidity typical of Sangiovese, with well-integrated tannins and an earthy finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Delicious with beef or rich pork dishes, roasts and hearty stews.
