Full-bodied, yet fresh, this is about combining elegance with power. It's so Latour in style. Excellent depth. Better in 2017, but so fine now. Blend of cabernet sauvigon, merlot and petit verdot. collapse

Oreno is the flagship wine, a blend of merlot with 40 percent cabernet sauvignon and 10 percent petit verdot aged 18 months in new French barriques. Rich and creamy, the wine maintains an agile weight, with lush purple fruit flavors seasoned with notes of anise and fennel. The flavors swirl around a firm core of tannins that channel the fruit toward a long and spicy finish. collapse

The 2013 Oreno is dark, creamy and voluptuous in the glass. Scorched earth, smoke tobacco, new French oak, licorice and herbs flesh out in a concentrated, structured wine that will benefit from a few years in the cellar... expand The 2013 Oreno is dark, creamy and voluptuous in the glass. Scorched earth, smoke tobacco, new French oak, licorice and herbs flesh out in a concentrated, structured wine that will benefit from a few years in the cellar. The tannins are a bit blenched today but otherwise, this is an impressive showing. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

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.
