SETTE 2017 is a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon from the rocky and sandy soils of Fratelli estate-owned vineyards located on the right bank of the Nira River in Akluj, Maharashtra. Sangiovese provides essence with distinct raspberry and violet notes and vibrant acidity, while Cabernet Sauvignon with its blackcurrant notes provides the backbone to SETTE, giving it a fruity character and an elegant structure aging in French oak barrels for 14 months, merges the pleasant notes of wood with the wine, adding a balanced vanilla flavor silky tannins and a vibrant finish. Decanting it for 20-30 minutes makes it all the more pleasurable.
The pure Chardonnay comes from the sandy soils in Motewadi, giving the wine a prominent mineral note with aromas of green apple, tropical fruit, and brioche. It is rich in the mouth with a wonderful texture, a dry wine that pairs beautifully with Indian cuisine.
Fratelli’s new visual identity was envisioned by the late Mr. Kapil Sekhri, who is also one of the seven founding brothers of the Fratelli family. Through this re-design and reinvigorated outlook, we hoped to pay a heartfelt tribute to Kapil and to share the story of love, passion and a shared dream of the three families at the heart of the brand.
