Drink now or cellar for up to 9 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

Known for producing world-class Super Tuscans, the Tenuta Sette Ponti estate is nestled in the heart of Chianti on forested rolling hills in eastern Tuscany. Up to 1997 the harvest from the estate was largely sold to top Tuscan producers until the luxury goods mogul Antonio Moretti decided to try establishing a winery on the property. Over the intervening years Tenuta Sette Ponti has developed a solid international reputation for innovative winemaking and wines which can stand amongst Tuscany’s finest.

The estate’s Passi di Orma is one of their newer wines which was first produced in 2015. This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc is made with hand-harvested grapes which are carefully selected before undergoing fermentation and maceration on the skins for 18 days. The wine is then matured in French oak barrels for six months to add further complexity and a silky smooth texture to the finished bottle.

At first glance this wine immediately seduces the drinker with its vivacious ruby red hue and intoxicating aromas of sweet wild berries, coffee and licorice. The enchantment continues on the palate which is an explosion of ripe blackberries, jammy plums, warming baking spice and earthy undertones which linger long on the tongue. The velvety mouthfeel, firm tannins and full body make this an ideal wine to serve alongside a hearty Bolognese pasta or a simply-cooked prime steak.
