Day #291 of the year.

Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo Toscana IGT 2018

I always end up cramming Saturdays full of activities. During the pandemic, one of my favorites has been biking around and exploring new neighborhoods in Brooklyn. By the end of the day, it is time to finally chill, treat myself, and enjoy Saturday night: I couldn’t be happier opening a bottle of Crognolo. This Tuscan wine really showcases what Sangiovese can do! It’s made in the Super Tuscan style and truly shines, presenting itself as a stunning, bold, juicy, and complex red. Brooklyn and Toscana, you never get old.
