Tenuta Sette Ponti 2017 Crognolo

This Sangiovese / Merlot (there seems to be some question as to whether this grape is in there) bowled me over with the amount of fruit and spice it had along with the great balance and restraint it showed: red and black fruit with a juicy mid-palate along with plenty of spice and smoke on the finish; as it opens there are other layers that come into play like tobacco, vanilla and leather ... by the time the bottle was empty blueberry, cassis, blackberry and plum had also made an appearance. This one needs a lie down of about 3 to 5 years, but you would not be committing infanticide if you opened it up now and put it into a big glass.  Rating: ****+
