Carlo Ferrini created this Maremma wine from one of Tuscany’s great estates, which spans 115 acres (35 planted to vines) purchased by Antonio Moretti in 1999. The property is typical of Tuscany’s coastal areas, with pockets of soil rich in clay and others rich in gravel and fine stones. The principal Poggio al Lupo vineyard is a southerly hillside vineyard rising 330 feet above sea level and planted with 5.5 acres of both Alicante and Petit Verdot; the balance is Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes are hand harvested and then fermented with prolonged maceration on the skins, followed by malolactic fermentation and maturation in French Allier barriques and in bottle before release.
Food pairing
Exceptional with full-flavored meats and hard cheeses.

Producer
Tenuta Sette Ponti lies on historic land in the heart of the Chianti zone at the end of the Via del Monte, known locally as the Via dei Sette Ponti, in a beautiful hidden valley. Named for the seven medieval bridges crossing the Arno River on the road from Arezzo to Florence—one of which, the Ponte Buriano, is perceptible in the right far background of Leonardo DaVinci’s Mona Lisa—the estate has a storied history. But it has been the dedication and savvy of luxury goods entrepreneur Antonio Moretti that has transformed the 750-acre estate into a multifaceted farm property that is today one of Tuscany’s most innovative, quality-driven producers of world-class Super Tuscans. Tenuta Sette Ponti’s first release was the 1998 vintage Crognolo, named after a wild bush, Cornus, which grows on the estate. The estate’s second release, Oreno, is named after a small river running through the estate.
