The warm, dry 2015 growing season brought full ripeness to the cabernet franc growing in Tenuta Sette Cieli's hillside vineyards overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. The wine is rich and soft, the flavors of red and black berries framed by notes of dark chocolate and sweet spice gained from two years in French oak barrels (40 percent new). Ample alcohol (15 percent) adds weight and warmth to the finish.

This Cabernet Franc offers bell pepper, bay leaf and dark-skinned fruit aromas. The dense, round palate delivers prune, espresso and clove alongside chewy tannins. Drink through 2023.

This is a pure expression of Cabernet Franc from Tenuta dei Sette Cieli. The 2015 Scipio shows dark fruit nuances that are presented with enormous precision and sharpness. Like the estate's blended red wine Indaco, this monovariety wine also shows a very dusty or dry side of carpentry shaving and crushed granite. Ultimately, this wine shows more balance because those dry notes are enhanced by blackberry, cherry confit and black currant all surrounded by spice and dry leather. Some 6,600 bottles were made.
