Currants blueberries and mint on the nose. Full body with velvety tannins and juicy fruit. Tannic now but will soften with age. Lots going on here. Very close to the superb 2008.

Very close to the superb 2008. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot and Petit Verdot. Try after 2013.

Layers of soft well-articulated fruit caress the palate in this sweeping dramatic wine. There is tons of depth freshness and vitality in the glass not to mention terrific overall balance. Sweet flowers spices and licorice wrap around the seamless captivating finish. Oreno is one of Italy's most improved wines. The 2009 a blend of Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese represents another move in the right direction. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029. 94+ -AG

Though rich and ripe there's a steely backbone and firm refined tannins for support. Lingers with dark fruit and spice with a hint of mineral. Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2013 through 2022. 3500 cases imported. -BS

Dark purple core with a ruby rim. Blackberry and plum appear on the nose supported by secondary notes of wildflowers salt air saddle leather and just a hint of espresso.

Blackberry and plum appear on the nose supported by secondary notes of wildflowers salt air saddle leather and just a hint of espresso. The 2009 features Oreno's signature silky texture and fine well-integrated tannins but in its youthful state the flavors are still tight. With vibrant acidity this has all the makings of another stunning release from Oreno. In another 2-4 years it will be nothing short of fantastic.

Sette Ponti

Tenuta Sette Ponti sits in the land of Sangiovese and Chianti, not far from the historic town of Arezzo. The estate received its name from Antonio F. Moretti, who wanted to pay homage to the so-called Road Sette Ponti (Seven Bridges), which connects the banks of the River Arno between Florence and Arezzo.

Tenuta Sette Ponti holds 330 hectares of land, of which more than 50 are planted with vineyards—tended entirely without mechanization. Included are Sangiovese, but also some great "internationals", such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and a small selection of other varieties. The soil composition has a heterogeneous structure, well combined between clay, sand, limestone, and typical Chianti stone Galestro.

The grapes undergo a “one by one” manual selection when they arrive in the cellars. An open vat fermentation is preferred along with a gentle pressing to get the best aroma from the grapes without bitterness or excessive drying.
