"Yantra is a Cabernet / Merlot blend. It is sensational with buoyant cherry notes and a long, soothing, mineral-spiked finish." - Matthew Jukes.com/Money Week A Yantra is a mandala — a map, chart or geometric pattern which represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically — a microcosm of the universe from a human perspective. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot that sees stainless steel and some old oak. Surprisingly mature and expressive nose - dried currants, stewing berries with soft leather and wild herbs. Plush palate. Juicy blackcurrants with blackberries and juniper berries, dried cranberries and some tobacco. Vivacious and ready to drink now.


Tasting Notes

Tenuta Sette Cieli is located between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci, on the coast of Tuscany at 400 meters above sea level. The Estate sprawls out over 70 hectares, 7 of which are set up as vineyards. The estate overlooks Bolgheri and its landscapes made up of gently downsloping hills that enclose the sea, thus creating a unique mild and temperate microclimate. 100% organic, all work done by hand.


Press Note:

“A full-bodied red with currants, dark chocolate and walnuts. Sexy and fun…” 91 points James Suckling "It is sensational with buoyant cherry notes and a long, soothing, mineral-spiked finish." Matthew Jukes, Moneyweek "This hand-crafted Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend comes from a 7ha organic family property located just 10 minutes' drive from the sea and bordering the Bolgheri DOC vineyards. The full-bodied palate is full of intense redcurrant fruit and wild herbs, with plenty of depth and vivacity." Decanter Magazine's "34 under £35," January 2017 "Merlot and Cabernet. Youthful crimson. Leafy Cabernet-driven nose with hints of cassis and cherry and a touch of leather. Fine, fragrant and juicy and still a little compact. Very poised and elegant and with fine yet tannic finish. Perhaps the light vintage helped, but this is certainly original. Wonderful everyday wine." (Walter Speller) 17pts JancisRobinson.com
