Sette Ponti or "seven bridges," refers to 7 bridges crossing Arno River on road from Arezzo to Florence. Blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cab Sauv & 10% Petit Verdot, aged 18 months, new French oak. Had ‘14 while ago, now tasting nicely. Dark Ruby with pronounced aromas of dark fruits, cigar box & earthy notes, touch of citrus. Flavors of cherry & plum with tobacco & spice. Fine chewy tannins, long finish ending with tobacco & mineral spice as the finish builds. Nice! Will continue to age! — 13 days ago

Nose: farmy. Yeast, barnyard, earth, hay, clay, minerals. Blueberry. Palate: soft, smooth, more than expected, nicely put together. I like this. 90. Good value @$13! — 7 days ago
Still my favorite wine from the Bertrand Domaine. This is a cuvée made without added S02 and aged in inox tanks. Pure terroir. Very nice cherry and hay nose, very inviting. The palate is well made, strong acid backbone, superb cherry notes all along, good width, a bit of a round mouthfeel. There are some light tannins in mid palate leading to a fruity finish that lasts for a while. Lovely wine! — 25 days ago
What a stunning Pinot, great value.
This had been open for 4 days and looking awesome. Great balance between fruit and classic Pinot Forrest floor savouriness. The fruit comes across like a beautiful fleshy mouthful. Really well balanced and approachable, attractive even for any level of Pinot drinker. Probably much brighter and leaner if I’d had on day 1. — 13 days ago
Unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Generous ripe fruit aromas and flavors with a beautiful mineral component. Hints of cedar, brown leaves, black pepper and freshly dug earth. Lots of minerality. Lovely soft tannins and flavorable finish. Beautifully structured and well balanced. — 11 days ago
