Welcome to episode 1241, another episode of “On The Road Edition”, hosted by Stevie Kim in which she continues her conversation with Alberto & Amedeo Moretti Cuseri.
This episode is a part of a series dedicated to the Tuscan estates of Cuseri Family: Sette Ponti, Orma and Poggio al Lupo. Today Stevie is at the Tenuta Sette Ponti, in the Chianti area, between Arezzo and Florence. Here she meets Alberto and Amadeo Moretti Cuseri, Export and Communications Director and Director and Manager of the Italian Market respectively Together they discuss about the history of the winery the vineyards, and the wines: Oreno the signature wine, Crognolo their contemporary Sangiovese, Vigna dell’Impero a significant wine for the family and Sette a new wine that will be release soon.
In the 1950s, the architect Alberto Moretti Cuseri acquired the first 55 hectares of land directly from the princesses Margherita and Maria Cristina di Savoia d’Aosta, daughters of Prince Amedeo di Savoia, Duke of Aosta. In the 1990s, his son Antonio Moretti Cuseri took control of the estate and began his project in the world of wine, which led him to release his first label in 1998. Thus began the history of Tenuta Sette Ponti, which with the release of the first vintage of Oreno in 1999 soon reached the top of the world’s most important wine rankings. In 2018, together with Antonio Moretti Cuseri, his sons Amedeo and Alberto started to take over the estates.
