Tenuta Sette Ponti is an estate in Tuscany, just east of the Chianti Classico zone. It makes a range of wines under the IGT Toscana designation, including Oreno, a Bordeaux Blend, and Crognolo, a Sangiovese-predominant wine with a small amount of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
There are around 50 hectares (124 acres) of vines within a wider estate of 330ha (815 acres), which sits at around 1000ft (300m) above sea level. The soil, which is fairly consistent across the estate, combines clay, sand, limestone and Galestro stone, which is well-suited to the Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that is planted here. Sette Ponti’s oldest vineyard is the 3ha (7.4 acre) Vigna dell’Impero (Empire Vineyard), planted in 1935 by the Count of Turin.
Sette Ponti makes wines in several other Tuscan appellations. These include Vigna di Pallino, an unoaked Chianti, and Anni, a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. The estate also makes a Grappa di Toscana.
