Crognolo is named after a wild bush, Cornus, that grows abundantly on the estate. Made from Sangiovese, a traditional Tuscan variety that produces elegant and age-worthy wines, Crognolo brings together the class of Sangiovese with a complexity bestowed by ageing in oak. The
blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot is grown in the compact, sandy soils allowing the grapes to develop intense flavour-profiles in the Tuscan countryside.
Intense ruby red in colour, with a fruit-forward and spicy bouquet followed by a full-boded palate of ripe cherry and berries.
