Sette Ponti or "seven bridges," refers to 7 bridges crossing the Arno River on the road from Arezzo to Florence. Blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cab Sauv & 10% Petit Verdot, aged 18 months in new French oak. Very dark Ruby with pronounced aromas of dark fruits, cigar box & earthy notes, touch of floral citrus. Flavors of black cherry & blackberry with tobacco & spice. Fine tight tannins, long finish ending with cacao, tobacco & mineral spice as the finish builds. Decant now! Will continue to age! — 5 days ago
Beautifully full bouquet. A daily man's Super Tuscan. A melange of perfume - fruity, sweet, savoury, old leather, oak. Chewy. Brilliant complexity on the palate represented by it's nose. Raisin, peppercorn, graphite, leaves.Much patience needed for this. — 10 days ago
More notes next bottle. Red bricking at the edge. Sour red cherry. Nice aromatics. Good weight. Medium acidity. The super drying grainy tannins, at this time, renders it off balance. But this is an unbelievable value. More notes with more bottles to follow.

Caiarossa is located in Riparbella, mid-Tuscany, Province of Pisa. The closeness to the sea has given this mix of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Sangiovese and Alicante freshness, delicacy and elegance. Dark fruit flavoured, but not over the top. Excellent wine! — 12 days ago
