Notes from the Winemaker:
The wine has a deep, opaque purple color suggesting intensity and extraction. Heady aromas and flavors deliver jammy black fruit with notes of cedar. The body is full, with silky tannins and a long, penetrating finish.

Located in the Maremma region of Tuscany, Poggio al Lupo is a great estate that spans 115 acres (35 which are planted). In 1999, Antonio Moretti purchased the property for its beautiful coastal terroir that features pockets of soil rich in clay and others rich in gravel and fine stones. The principal Poggio al Lupo vineyard is a southerly hillside vineyard rising 330 feet above sea level. Grapes were hand harvested and during fermentation, the wine macerated for 25 days, followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine aged 18 months in 100% new French Allier barriques and 6 months in the bottle before release.

Technical Data:
GRAPES: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Antonio Galloni (2014 vintage):
"The 2014 Poggio al Lupo (Cabernet Sauvignon) is another impressive wine from Sette Ponti, especially within the context of the vintage. Herb, rose petal and raspberry jam are some of the signatures. The 2014 is perhaps a touch slender, but it possesses notable freshness and aromatic nuance. I would give it a year or two to unwind." - Antonio Galloni (Nov 2016)
