Winemaker Notes

Malbec, Cabernet and Merlot come together perfectly in this stimulating, complex and structured wine, better expressing the complex and rich terroir with spicy and red-fruit aromas. Freshness, structure, persistence — this is a wine that preserves unchanged traits of the original season and terroir, intensified by 18 months in French oak.
Blend: 33% Malbec, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 92
The 2016 Indaco (Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot) is laced with a whole range of floral and savory notes that give it a very distinctive aromatic profile. Crushed raspberry, blood orange, rose petal, mint and cedar are all laced together. Medium in body and silky, the 2016 has plenty to offer. I find the aromatics a bit diffuse, although aeration does seem to help. Otherwise, this Malbec-based blend is nicely done.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
A blend of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this presents aromas of dark-skinned berry, underbrush and cedar. The dense palate offers toasted oak, black currant jam and licorice set against assertive, rather astringent tannins. You'll also notice the warmth of evident alcohol. Drink through 2025.
JS 90
James Suckling
Black fruit, stewed tomato and sweet spice on the nose. It’s full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins. Dusty and structured with a savory character. Spicy finish. Drink or hold.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of equal parts Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the Tenuta Sette Cieli 2016 Indaco boasts dark color concentration and rich fruit flavors that all veer to the dark side of the spectrum with dried blackberry, plum and black currant. This wine shows an especially focused and linear approach that I associate with this classic vintage. But there is also a touch of the tannic or phenolic dryness that I remember from the 2015 vintage. The taste profile is augmented by spice, toast and other aromas from the oak aging. Some 10,000 bottles were made. The wine offers a playful touch of Argentina in Tuscany.

Tenuta Sette Cieli, Italy
Tenuta Sette Cieli  Winery Image

Tenuta Sette Cieli is located between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci, on the Tuscan coast 1,300 above sea level. The 173-acre estate overlooks terraced vineyards and the Tyrrhenian Sea, and is surrounded by the lush woods of Monteverdi Marittimo. Seventeen acres of high-density vineyards are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. Because of Tenuta Sette Cieli’s respect for nature, the winery has chosen organic practices to safeguard the environment. Everything is done by hand in the vineyards, with careful attention to each detail. The journey continues in the cellar where the winery employs single-variety vinification. Fermentation starts with wild yeasts, and the final selection of the wines is done only after a period of barrel aging in French oak barrels.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
