2016 Scipio, Tenuta Sette Cieli, Monteverdi Marittimo, Tuscany

Elena's ode to Cabernet Franc, this shows the very best of the grape. Incredibly intense, with refined tannins, and a beautifully floral perfume, it's the persistence and complexity of this that really blows you away. An incredibly profound wine, that should be mentioned in the same breath as Bolgheri's other great names.

Tenuta Sette Cieli

The first vineyards were planted at Tenuta Sette Cieli in 2001, one hill over from the original Sassicaia vineyard, which is visible from their winery. Their 10 hectares of vineyards, planted with Bordeaux varieties high in the hills overlooking the Mediterranean above the famous town of Bolgheri, are farmed organically. And the results are seriously impressive. Young winemaker Elena Pozzolini honed her craft at top estates around the world, and is producing wines of the highest quality. This is a producer to watch.
