Italian Red Wines from Tenuta dei Sette Cieli are elite and considered some of the best in Tuscany. INDACO 2004 is without a doubt the best Italian red wine from that wine producer, and probably from the region. Indaco is named after the color Indigo, the blue light in the rainbow. It is a delighful red wine that is aged for over 16 months in French oak barrels and has a fascinating personality. It is a glare of Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc with great aromas of ripe dark fruit. You can taste the sweet grape, smokey oak, vanilla and concentrated earthy tones. Expect a very juicy red wine with great length and a perfect balance of fruit and tannin. The high ratings are truly earned by this wine.
TENUTA the DEI SETTE CIELI translates to "Skies of the seven heavens." The winery is located in an Italian plateu at an altitude of nearly 400 meters above sea level and overlooks the vast landscape from Maremma to the Mediterranean. If you look up from the vineyards, you can see the beautiful skies that pour sun over the ripe grapes. These are the skies that inspired the owners to give the name to the winery.
