Description

The flagship wine of Tenuta Sette Ponti, this Merlot-dominant blend has an illustrious history of big scores far out of step with its very reasonable price tag. With 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet and 10% Petit Verdot, the 2014 vintage spent 25 days on skins before 12 to 18 months in French Oak, the resulting wine showing very classical Bordeaux style, but with a warmth and generosity of fruit that is all Tuscany.

Smells

Dark brooding nose of damson plum, Mediterranean herbs, cassis, liquorice and warm earth.

Tastes

Bold and densely concentrated, with ripe curranty flavours and a bed of fine, structural tannins lending serious architecture to the palate. Built for the long haul, it can be enjoyed young from a decanter or will be best from 2020 onwards.
