Bright ruby red. Complex with a prevalence of small red fruits and floral notes. The body is beautifully balanced with a long finish. Delicious with full flavored meats and roasts.

The 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.

Bright, bursting with black cherry, plum, leather, menthol and spice flavors. Smooth and harmonious, with fine grip on the earth- and mineral-tinged finish. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2028. 7,500 cases made.

This 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.
