Tenuta Sette Ponti, Italy

In the 90s Antonio Moretti Cuseri, driven by a passion and an interest in wine he had since he was young, took control of his father’s winery, and worked alongside the best viticulturists and enologists to evaluate the suitability of the land for the production of quality wines, thus launching his own brand.

He stopped selling the grapes to other producers and in 1998 released his first label: Crognolo, which is made from clones of the historic Sangiovese vines in the estate’s oldest vineyard, Vigna dell’Impero. For the first time, it’s all about Tenuta Sette Ponti, named for the seven bridges that extend over the Arno River on the road from Florence to Arezzo. Consequently, one of these bridges happens to be the Buriano, which is depicted in the celebrated Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo Da Vinci. In 1999, Antonio released the first vintage of Oreno, a wine that after only three harvests reached the top of the most important world wine rankings. In-depth research, an incredible love for vines and for age-old expertise about the art of winemaking has made it possible to make exceedingly high quality, organic wines in line with Tuscan traditions. In 2018, Antonio Moretti Cuseri’s children began collaborating with their father. Amedeo is the winery director and Italian market manager, and Alberto is the communications and export director. This new generation represents the company’s strong values, an expression of tradition and the great passion passed down by their father. A fresh and new vision of wine is strengthened by high-quality wines boasting an international flair, consistently gaining recognition all over the world, and becoming symbols of Italian excellence and authentic style. The Moretti Cuseri family’s wines have become mainstays in the lifestyle, fashion, and event industries as well.


Because of their location, aspect, latitude, and longitude, their vineyards give life to unique wines, full of elegance, structure, longevity, and fruity aromas. Even the winds and lighter breezes from the nearby Pratomagno zone ventilate the vineyards, contributing to their health.


When the grapes arrive in the cellar, they go through a natural transformation into wine, before beginning suitable aging in temperature-controlled steel vats, concrete tanks, ceramic containers, and oak barrels. The only thing we do is favuor natural fermentation, intervening as little as possible.
