The 2014 Poggio al Lupo (Cabernet Sauvignon) is another impressive wine from Sette Ponti, especially within the context of the vintage. Herb, rose petal and raspberry jam are some of the signatures. The 2014 is perhaps a touch slender, but it possesses notable freshness and aromatic nuance. I would give it a year or two to unwind.

This has nice sweet fruit notes, with black cherry, black currant and cedar aromas and flavors matched to dense, grainy tannins and earth and tobacco accents. Pretty overall, with spicy length. Drink now through 2023. 1,700 cases made.
"The wine has a deep, opaque purple color suggesting intensity and extraction. Heady aromas and flavors deliver jammy black fruit with notes of cedar. The body is full, with silky tannins and a long, penetrating finish. Exceptional with full-flavored meats and hard cheeses."
