In that wonderful corner of Tuscany that is Chianti, lies the Tenuta Sette Ponti. The winery, now owned by Antonio Moretti, covers an area of about 330 hectares, of which fifty are under vine. The history of this estate goes through high-sounding names. In the 50s the architect Alberto Moretti, in love with this area not only for the richness and beauty of the land, but also for the presence of a fabulous Game Reserve, full of deer, wild boar, pheasants, hares and deer in the mantle yellow, buy the whole estate from Princess Margaret and Maria Cristina of Savoy. This estate had belonged to Leopold d 'Habsburg, Grand Duke of Tuscany, who had implanted the historic "vineyard of Cue Ball".
