Winemaker Notes ... NOI4 (noy-kwah-tro) translates to "the four of us." It represents the four members of the Ratti family, and is used at the entrance of their property. NOI4 was also the fourth wine added to Tenuta Sette Cieli's portfolio and there was a team of four people that chose to make this wine. Very intense ruby garnet colour with evident violet reflections, clean and wide nose with notes of blueberry, pepper, cocoa and liquorice. Very harmonious taste with good structure and persistent with a pleasant finish with notes of jam.
93 Points Vinous ... The 2017 NOI4 is a bold, exuberant wine that shows the natural intensity of the year in its racy, exotic personality. A rush of black fruit, espresso, liquorice, leather and dark spice fleshes out in the glass. Today the tannin's are a bit imposing. A year or two of bottle age and/or a healthy decant will help. Drinking window: 2022 - 2029.
