Tenuta Sette Ponti sits in the land of Sangiovese and Chianti, not far from the historic town of Arezzo. The estate received its name from Antonio F. Moretti, who wanted to pay homage to the so-called Road Sette Ponti (Seven Bridges), which connects the banks of the River Arno between Florence and Arezzo.

Tenuta Sette Ponti holds 330 hectares of land, of which more than 50 are planted with vineyards—tended entirely without mechanization. Included are Sangiovese, but also some great "internationals", such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and a small selection of other varieties. The soil composition has a heterogeneous structure, well combined between clay, sand, limestone, and typical Chianti stone Galestro.

The grapes undergo a “one by one” manual selection when they arrive in the cellars. An open vat fermentation is preferred along with a gentle pressing to get the best aroma from the grapes without bitterness or excessive drying.

The initial impression reveals an abundance of blackberries and currants, their luscious sweetness mingling with the essence of minerals, violets, and graphite.

As the wine caresses the palate, it unveils a full-bodied nature that is both powerful and graceful. The tannins, firm yet silky, create a texture that is incredibly polished and intense. They seamlessly integrate with the wine, enhancing its overall structure and depth. The finish is seemingly endless, lingering on the palate for minutes, leaving an indelible impression of elegance and finesse.
