(MONTEVERDI MARITTINO – LIVORNO) In Monteverdi Marittimo, near Bolgheri, there is Tenuta Sette Cieli, a winery that produces organic red wines such as Scipio, Yantra, Noi4 and Indaco.
Tenuta Sette Cieli’s History and Terroir
In Tuscany, more precisely in the indomitable and wild Maremma Tuscany, there is a valley that is called ” Borgolese amphitheater “, and the expression could not be more apt. Around the village of Bolgheri , surrounded by rolling hills, there is a plain overlooking the sea. This shape is very reminiscent of a natural amphitheater, hence the name. This conformation is perfect for the growth of wines, thanks to the temperate and cool microclimate with significant changes even at night, leading to a complete ripening of the grapes.
The Philosophy of the wines of Tenuta Sette Cieli
It is no coincidence that both on the hills and in the plains there are companies considered excellent in national and international markets. These include Tenuta Sette Cieli , born in 2001 from the Erika dream. From the beginning Erika made a courageous choice: to cultivate her vineyards according to nature according to the principles of organic agriculture. The goal has always been respect for the environment and its enhancement, giving its wines the slow, natural rhythms. A philosophy that is applied both in the vineyard and in the cellar, where fermentation is carried out spontaneously, only with natural yeasts and the aging of the grapes takes place in French oak barriques. A choice that is now in fashion, but that in those years can be called forward-looking. His strength and passion were inherited from his sons Ambrogio and Acqua , who are now in charge of the company.
The wines of Tenuta Sette Cieli
The estate is about 400 meters high immersed in the woods of Monteverdi Marittimo ; its 10 hectares of vineyards are terraced and divided according to the cultivated varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon , Cabernet Franc , Merlot and Malbec . From these varieties four thick red wines are born: Yantra , from Sanskrit, Cabernet Sauvignon 60%, Merlot 40% with an intriguing structure, Noi4 , conceived by four people and from the four varieties of house grapes, Indigo , Malbec 40%, Cabernet Sauvignon 30%, and Merlot 30% and last but not least Scipio, with an imposing name like the power it gives off already at the first sip. All their wines are an expression of the territory in which they are born, and it could not be different given the natural way in which they are treated.
