Scipio, Toscana IGT – 2009 – Good Neighbors – Robb Report

“Location is everything, as realtors are wont to declare – and nowhere is this truism truer than in the wine industry. Erika Ratti, who purchased 170 acres of land near the Tuscan village of Monteverdi Marittimo, understood the importance of locale when she selected the land that would become Tenuta Sette Cieli. Her son, Ambrogio Cremona Ratti, who now serves as the estate’s owner and brand ambassador, is the beneficiary of her prescience: The estate’s neighbors include Ornellaia, Guado al Tasso, and Tenuta San Guido, the home of Sassicaia. A vintner could ask for no better company, and the vineyard’s elite environs inform the flavors and textures of the Tenuta Sette Cieli 2009 Scipio Toscana. This 100 percent Cabernet Franc exudes aromas of blueberry, blackberry, and bittersweet chocolate, while on the palate, leather, cinnamon, allspice, and sweet oregano precede the prolonged finish.”
