Tenuta Sette Cieli Yantra Toscana IGT 2011 – 24.57 – Organic. All estate fruit, Planted 2001-2002. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot. 7 months in stainless-steel tanks. Hillside vineyards surrounded by the lush woods of Monteverdi Marittimo between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The 2011 Yantra is characterized by a persistent fruitiness and pleasant freshness; it is interesting for its complex simplicity. The wine displays soft, ripe tannins, a rich mouthfeel and a long finish.
Tenuta Sette Cieli NOI 4 Bolgheri 2011 – 41.97 – Purchased fruit, 25 years old vines. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Bolgheri (this is a wine born of the desire to explore new territory). Ripe, sweet fruit gives way to a wine with a very defined and yet very different character when compared to the other Tenuta Sette Cieli wines. Aging Potential: 10 years.
Tenuta Sette Cieli Indaco Toscana IGT 2009 – 49.97 – Organic. All estate fruit Planted 2001-2002. 40% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot. Powerful dry-farmed Malbec is the backbone to this stimulating, concentrated, structured wine. It expresses the rich, complex terroir with spicy and red fruit aromas. Barrel Aging: 14 months in 60-gallon French oak (40% new). Aging Potential: 15-20 years
Tenuta Sette Cieli Scipio Toscana IGT 2009 – 111.97 – Organic. 100% estate vineyards. Planted 2001-2002. 100% Cabernet Franc. The different lots of Cabernet Franc that went into the 2009 Scipio were vinified separately, resulting in a unique wine that seduces with its fruity aromas and spicy notes. This is complex wine of concentration, balance and finesse. Barrel Aging: 24 months in 60-gallon French oak (40% new). Aging Potential: 25-30 years
