James Suckling, 96 Points 

"Complex aromas of fresh flowers and cherries follow through to a full body, firm and very silky tannins and a long, long finish. Driven and fine. Drink from 2022." 

Wine Spectator, 95 Points 

"This is all about purity, finesse and energy. A line of cherry and raspberry flavors runs through this red, with grace notes of leather, tobacco, graphite and underbrush. Reined-in and firm, yet balanced, with a lingering aftertaste of cherry, mineral and spice. Best from 2021 through 2045." 

Wine Advocate, 92 Points 

"A pure expression of Sangiovese, the Tenuta Sette Ponti 2016 Valdarno di Sopra Vigna dell'Impero opens to brambly notes of forest floor and wild cherry, followed by crushed flowers and scorched earth. There is a warm-climate element to this wine that is specific to Tuscany, and that is presented with extra ripeness and spice. The wine finishes with some bitter almond and grilled rosemary. I tasted bottle 3,490 of the 9,767 bottles produced in this vintage." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Intense ruby red with garnet reflection; the nose has hints of violet and tertiary aromas of undergrowth. In mouth it is balanced with fine tannins, good body and persistence." 

Alcohol: 14.5%
