80 hectares – unique microclimate
Tenuta Sette Cieli is located between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci, on the coast of Tuscany at around 400 metres above sea level. This prestigious estate sprawls over 80 hectares, however only 10 are set up as vineyards. Dry stone wall terraces separate the different grape varieties grown by team, who fashion their premium cuvees of supreme quality from a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. The estate is blessed with a unique, temperate microclimate that is created by the amphitheatre like positioning of the vines, overlooking Bolgheri and the gently sloping hills that fall down towards the coastline.
Of particular interest is their ‘Indaco’ cuvee, a blend based on Malbec, Cabernet and Merlot. A wine of big structure, it clearly expresses the rich terroir of Bolgheri, showcasing red fruit aromas backed up by a good dose of spice. Freshness, structure and persistence are all present to balance out the palate, further aided by 18 months ageing in oak barriques.
