Vintage 2015

Always a strong player in the mid-range Super Tuscan sweepstakes – including a Wine Spectator Top 100 appearance for the 2007 vintage – Crognolo has really come into its own over the past few years.  The 2015 edition is a luxurious blend of about 90% Sangiovese from the Arno River Valley in western Chianti plus 10% or so Merlot for plumpness and extra complexity.  This is one of those wines that excels without trying too hard.  Blackcurrant, black cherry and blackberry fruit are framed by notes of fresh and dried herb, bitter chocolate, baking spice, and a hint of minerality.  It’s already delicious from first pour and will continue to improve through 2025.  An exceptional value in top-notch Super Tuscan red!

"A firm and chewy young wine with chestnut, chocolate and oyster shell character. A blackberry undertone. Full body, polished and fresh. Drink now or hold in your cellar."  James Suckling 94 points
