This is the second edition of this new wine from Tenuta Sette Ponti. The 2013 Valdarno di Sopra Vigna dell'Impero is a gorgeous expression of Sangiovese that shows the wild and slightly rustic personality of the Valdarno di Sopra appellation. Only 6,700 bottles were produced. The bouquet delivers smooth integration and lots of varietal character with wild berry, spice, wet earth and underbrush. I am impressed. The 2013 vintage offers a very smooth and silky approach with medium build and good persistence.
