From Erika's dream a project was born: discover the soul of a wild terrain and transform it into a great wine
Our aim: produce the ideal wine respecting nature. Our journey started in 2001, when we first began to plant the rst vineyards at 400 meters near Bolgheri. An enchanting location: Tenuta Sette Cieli can be found on top of the hills, looking out over terraced vineyards and the Tyrrhenian Sea, surrounded by the lush woods of Monteverdi Marittimo. Today Erika’s strength and courage live on in a dream with Ambrogio and Acqua. Tenuta Sette Cieli: an heritage.
SETTE CIELI, ABOVE US ONLY SKY
Tenuta Sette Cieli is located between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci, on the coast of Tuscany at 400 meters above sea level. The Estate sprawls out over 80 hectares, 10 of which are set up as vineyards. Dry stone wall terraces separate the different grape varieties grown: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec, are planted at high density in an ideal terrain for grape viticulture. The Estate overlooks Bolgheri and its landscapes made up of gently down sloping hills that enclose the sea, thus creating a fantastic mild and temperate microclimate.
GREAT WINES CAN ONLY BE MADE IN A GREAT TERROIR
The strength of this terroir: a unique microclimate, well ventilated with important atmospheric temperature ranges, and a medium textured soil where fractions of rocks, sand and clay merge together for a suitable site for grape production. The great strength of the microclimate, together with these not too vigorous terrains, results in an enviable balance that allows for consistent and complete maturations of the grapes.
FROM AN OBSESSIVE CARE IN THE VINEYARDS, A CAREFUL WORK IN THE CELLAR, COME WINES WITH A GREAT PERSONALITY AND CHARACTER
OUR DREAM: TRANSFORM THE TENACITY AND THE STRENGTH OF THE TERROIR IN GREAT WINES, RESPECTING WHAT NATURE GIVES US AND THE VALUES WE BELIEVE IN.
