jamessuckling.com, June 2019
A fresh yet rich and dense red with cherries, berries, light cream and hints of hazelnuts. Full body, soft and layered tannins and a fruity finish. Reserved and tight. Shows balance for 2017. Better after 2021.

In 2017, Oreno is not quite as sumptuous as it can be, but it certainly has plenty of its trademark exuberance. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

Wine Spectator, February 2020
A big, brawny red, this delivers flavors of black cherry, plum and spice, with hints of wild rosemary. Ends with a dry feel and lightly astringent tannins that may upset the balance as this ages, but stays fresh overall... expand A big, brawny red, this delivers flavors of black cherry, plum and spice, with hints of wild rosemary.

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.
