  • Introduction

    • Noi4 (noy-kwah-tro) translates to “the four of us”. This is because it is composed by four varieties and it was conceived by a team of four. We also like the idea of sharing the bottle
      among four people.

Reviews

  • Tenuta Sette Cieli NOI4, Bolgheri DOC — 2018 – Wine & Spirits – 91 Points

    This Bourdeaux-style blend combines velvety dark chocolate richness with meaty savor in an intriguing juxtaposition. Its plummy, spicy fruit shows good freshness and verve.

  • Tenuta Sette Cieli NOI4, Bolgheri DOC — 2018 – Wine Spectator – 92 Points

    Dark tones of black cherry and blackberry add details of mint and eucalyptus, while the tannins are robust yet integrated. The finish is slightly chewy.
