Our aim: produce the ideal wine respecting nature. Our journey started in 2001, when we first began to plant the first vineyards at 400 meters near Bolgheri. An enchanting location: Tenuta Sette Cieli can be found on top of the hills, looking out over terraced vineyards and the Tyrrhenian Sea, surrounded by the lush woods of Monteverdi Marittimo. Today Erika?s strenght and courage live on in a dream come true. Tenuta Sette Cieli: an heritage. Tenuta Sette Cieli is located between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci, on the coast of Tuscany at 400 meters above sea level. The Estate sprawls out over 70 hectares, 7 of which are set up as vineyards. Dry stone wall terraces separate the different grape varieties grown on the estate: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec, are planted at high density in a unique terrain, ideal for grape vine cultivation. The Estate overlooks Bolgheri and its landscapes made up of gently downsloping hills that enclose the sea, thus creating a unique mild and temperate microclimate. The strength of this terroir: it?s a unique microclimate, well ventilated with important atmospheric temperature ranges, and a medium textured soil where fractions of rocks, sand and clay merge together for a suitable site for grape production. The great strength of the microclimate, together with these not too vigorous terrains, results in an enviable balance that allows for consistent and complete maturations of the grapes. Fully respecting nature and the cultivated vines, we have chosen organic grapevine culture to safeguard and value our environment. In the vineyards, every operation is done by hand with careful and fastidious attention to every detail. The journey continues in the cellar where, moreover, the careful labour of the vineyards goes on, using single-variety vinification. Fermentation starts with wild yeasts, found on the skins of the grapes, so all the process is natural. The final selection of the wines is done only after a period of barrel ageing in french oak wood barrels.
