Not quite as impressive as I thought it would be. A very good pure breed Sangiovese from Tuscany. Super indeed. Mustiness complemented the otherwise balanced structure. Some early smoke and cherry, but not much mid palate. No real complexity. Liked it, but way too.much $$$ for this experience.
So as a caveat, this is a rare happening when I don't align with @Antonio Galloni . Maybe I didn't let this open long enough (1 hour). Clearly, there is something wrong with me tonight.

Slight herb taste, one hour later, complex aroma is coming out. Concentrated. Smooth. Mild. Black currant. Still lots of tanning due to new vintage. But we can enjoy even now. Elegancy. 2016 @350/G(4500), T Enoteca, 191214 — 2 days ago
Drank 11/30/19. Average pairing with Rigatoni bolognese.
An interesting blend of equal parts merlot, sangiovese, syrah, and petit verdot. Nose of red and black cherry, some tomato leaf, and sweet baking spices. Flavors of cherry liqueur, cranberry sauce, and a hint of earth. Finishes with red fruit and tar, with medium tannins and finish.

Wow, har aldrig doftar eller smakat på något som påminner om det här vinet. Har en typ av mjölkig doft som är wierd men samtidigt lite förtrollande. Otroligt mjuk och fluffig. Söta röda körsbär, torkade plommon, choklad. Sexig! Som pryd blir jag lätt generad av detta vin. — 2 days ago
The estate of Sette Ponti lies in the heart of the Chianti zone, 15 miles NW of the city of Arezzo past village of San Giustino Valdarno. A blend of 90% Sangiovese & 10% Merlot, aged in French Allier barriques. Deep Ruby with red fruit aromas and blossom spice. On the palate blackberry and cherry flavors, earthy spice and grainy tannins. Good balance lingering finish ending with some oak, earthy and mineral tones. — 13 days ago
