In 1994, the Ratti family purchased more than 170 acres of isolated land overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, near the Tuscan village of Monteverdi Marittimo. The wild terrain used for horseback riding and wild boar hunting was an inspiration to the family. Often, very rugged and difficult land is best for great vines and wines.

They chose the name “Tenuta Sette Cieli,” or “Estate of Seven Skies,” for their winery because the property sits at 1,300 feet, atop a hill with incredible views in every direction. 

While most of Tuscany is uniquely suited to Sangiovese, the Rattis knew this land was for Bordeaux grape varieties. They would build Sette Ciele to make Super-Tuscans exclusively. Today there are 17 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. 

We first carried the Malbec-forward Indaco in 2009. To this day, I remember tasting it. I was skeptical of an Italian Malbec but it blew me away! I was similarly impressed with their other wines, and I have remained impressed with every vintage since.  

Elena Pozzolini was born near Florence in 1983. She received a degree in viticulture and oenology from the University of Pisa and went on to build her career through Mendoza, Australia, and finally with Bibi Greatz in Tuscany. She joined Tenuta Sette Cieli in 2013.
