Tenuta Sette Ponti Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Crognolo 2006
Dark ruby red color. Started out very tight with only a half hour in decanter but after about an hour of air aromas of ripe strawberry, rose petal, red licorice and spiced cookie emerged. On the palate it showed blackberry and cherry with orange rind and a little bit of oak showing through. All of this was carried by a balanced acidity that kept it all very food friendly
Nice, reasonably priced tuscan
Agree 100% with description by wine.com review. The high rating includes the dollar value. Its hard to find a Tuscan wine of this quality at this price point. The 2007 vintage was #30 on WS top 100 wines, but that vintage is now hard to find.
Had this at Italian restaurant in Austin, Siena, and it was fantastic. It really opened up as it sat, but you could drink immediately, too. Full fruity flavors, especially bing cherry. The five of us had 2 bottles and really enjoyed. It was good with all we ate!
