SETTE PONTI wine tasting in Tuscany

Toscana Crognolo and Toscana Oreno

Da Vinci’s Monna Lisa (the Gioconda)

In Wine Spectator Top 100 for 5 times!!!

Tenuta Sette Ponti in Wine Spectator’s TOP 100 for FIVE TIMES with its CROGNOLO & ORENO supertuscans.

History makes sense: Etruscans, Romans, the Medicis, the Princesses of Savoia-Aosta… all winemakers HERE. You’ll be personal guest of the owners and you’ll have lunch facing the landscape that’s on the background of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Monna Lisa (the Gioconda).

The Sette Ponti Estate is located in the Chianti, between Arezzo and Florence, and takes its name from the number of bridges that cross the river Arno between the two cities.

The first of these bridges, the Buriano Bridge can been seen in the background of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
