Tenuta Sette Ponti lies on historic land in the heart of the Chianti zone at the end of the Via del Monte, known locally as the Via dei Sette Ponti, in a beautiful hidden valley. Named for the seven medieval bridges crossing the Arno River on the road from Arezzo to Florence—one of which, the Ponte Buriano, is perceptible in the right far background of Leonardo DaVinci’s Mona Lisa—the estate has a storied history. But it has been the dedication and savvy of luxury goods entrepreneur Antonio Moretti that has transformed the 750-acre estate into a multifaceted farm property that is today one of Tuscany’s most innovative, quality-driven producers of world-class Super Tuscans. Some successful men are satisfied when they get to the top of one specific field. Others think outside the box, no matter how plush the box. Men like Antonio Moretti, whose achievements comprise cult fashion names: Modi & Moda, Arfango, Bonora, Carshoe, ranging from a line of reasonably priced, top-quality wear, to handmade shoes crafted from ancient leather.
