Tried twice recently, 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 opening 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!

Big, bold, intense. In your face blend (in an old world sense) of dark berry fruit, smoke, camphor, and dense tannins.

Typical super Tuscan, which needs more time to unfurl.
Lovely barrel toast, with blue and dark fruits on the nose. Vibrant and tight mid palette expression. Bold tannins with a lush texture. Needs another 2 years in the bottle, but showing its pedigree already.

Strong chocolate on the nose with ripe red fruit. The palate expresses ripe fruit with a dried cocoa on the finish. A wonderful wine.
