This estate, whose name resonates with the seven bridges linking the banks of the Arno river between Florence and Arezzo, started a new chapter in its history in the 1950s when the Moretti Cuseri family acquired 50 hectares.
Tenuta Sette Ponti produces refined and elegant wines that are recognised as being among the finest Italian wines.
Tenuta Sette Ponti reigns over more than 300 hectares of land, 54 of which are planted with vines. This exceptional vineyard is planted on a tapestry of soils whose different topologies and altitudes make the estate unique. The vines are 20 to 30 years old on average and are ideally exposed to the south at an altitude of 250 metres.
