Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Crognolo is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot aged in tonneaux and neutral barrique for up to 14 months. This is a tight and elegantly streamlined wine that sports a very attractive mid-weight style. The wine opens to aromas of red cherry, plum, toasted almond and crushed granite or stone. This vintage is both balanced and bright. Some 130,000 bottles were made.
Wine EnthusiastThis 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot blend offers aromas of dark-skinned berry, vanilla and underbrush. The firm palate evokes mature black cherry, clove and mocha alongside solid tannins.
