Tried again! In the heart of the Chianti lies Estate of Sette Ponti, 15 miles northwest of the city of Arezzo, past village of San Giustino Valdarno. Has 10% Merlot, aged in French Allier barriques, deep Ruby with red fruit aromas and floral notes. On the palate blackberry, plum and cherry flavors with blossom notes, spice and fine integrated tannins. Good balance, long finish ending with some oak and mineral tones. Nice! Will age a bit! Tasting well now!

This is a nice Tuscan Red. Showing black and red fruits with wood, earth, spices, peppercorn, tobacco, chocolates and coffee.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Still young, but already enjoyable even by itself.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly.

I paired it with BBQ Meats.

A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot.

14% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

This is a young Tuscan Red. Showing red and black fruits with earth, wood, spices, peppercorn, vegetables, green herbs, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body and tangy.

Very dry on the palate with medium plus acidity.

Medium finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 3 year old will be better in 5 years.

A good food wine that I paired with cheeses and dried meats.

Amazing Tuscan value. Screams Italy. Old world style but concentrated.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

On the nose, black plums, black currants, stewed cherries, vanilla, oak, light vegetables, coffee, licorice, spices and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, plums, black currants, oak, light vanilla, spices, licorice, tobacco, earth, herbs, dark coffee and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty and tangy Sangiovese based red from Tuscany. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Spicy, powerful and tangy.

Still young and would be better in 3 to 5 years. A good quality wine with good potential. Would continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Needs time to open up. I gave it 90 minutes, but I don't think it was enough. Still a little hot, which will dissipate with time.

A good food wine that I paired with cheeses and olives. Will pair nicely with pizza.

Grabbed another bottle! Estate of Sette Ponti lies in the heart of the Chianti zone, 15 miles northwest of the city of Arezzo, past the village of San Giustino Valdarno. Crognolo, aged in French Allier barriques, deep Ruby with red fruit aromas and floral notes. On the palate blackberry and sweet cherry flavors, blossom notes, spice and fine dusty tannins. Good balance, long finish ending with some oak and mineral tones. Nice! Try in 2022 or decant for an hour first.
