Tenuta Sette Ponti has been a fixture in the Tuscan wine region since the Moretti Cuseri family purchased the estate in the 1950’s. Situated on approximately 825 acres, the 125 acres of vineyards are certified organic and sustainable with most dating back to the 1960’s, although the most prized vineyard “Vigna deli’Impero” dates back to 1935. Sette Ponti produces a wide range of well-known wines in addition to Crognolo, including Oreno and Orma, and is often considered an equal to its more famous, and expensive, neighbors, including Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Guado Al Tasso. The 2016 vintage in Tuscany was also hailed by critics as a “dream” with quality matching that of 2015 but with many wines being more aromatic and deeper in color, albeit with lower yields than the previous vintage.


“The 2016 harvest was a winemakers dream in terms of quality. Quantity however was down from the previous season due to a rough growing season. The season saw cooler then average temperatures that led to a slight reduction in yields. This was followed by a very warm and dry summer - with only one rainfall in August to help the vines. Harvesting began in the beginning of October and the resulting wines have wonderful flavors with exceptional profiles. Bright ruby red. Complex with a prevalence of small red fruits and floral notes. The body is beautifully balanced with a long finish.” – Winery Notes


This wine is a rich and complex Super Tuscan red dominated by Sangiovese with a splash of Merlot, this current release being a combination of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, all sourced from 30-year old vines. GVWM is excited to be able to offer this perpetual Tuscan IGT over achiever, in stock and ready to ship, at the lowest price available online - 18% below market average!

 

95 JS: "Aromas of rosewood, cherries and blueberries follow through to a full body, tight and focused tannins and a long and flavorful finish. This is linear and bright. The tannins are wonderfully polished and poised. Hard not to drink now, but it will improve beautifully in the bottle. A blend of mostly sangiovese with a touch of merlot. Drink or hold." - James Suckling
