Von dichter rubinroter Farbe mit leichtem Violettschimmer, zeigt sich in der Nase aussergewöhnlich dicht und komplex, duftet nach reifen roten Beerenfrüchten und dunkler Schokolade, hinzu kommen feiner balsamischer Noten. Der "Oreno" ist körperreich und voll, von reicher Struktur, pulsierend, er gewinnt durch die feinen Holznoten, im Finale ist er sehr lange anhaltend.

Structured and racy, showing blueberry and chocolate aromas and flavors, with loads of currant. Full and tannic, yet polished and caressing, with an impressive and persistent finish. A marked change from some past vintages, with only Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot in the blend. Best after 2014. Wine Spectator, Oct 31 2010, James Suckling


Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2008 Oreno is stunningly beautiful. An open, expressive bouquet laced with mint, red berries, roses and spices emerges with superb clarity and balance. The tension between the minerality of the vintage and the rich expression of fruit that is one of the house’s hallmarks play off each other beautifully here. The finish is utterly exquisite in its beguiling beauty...it is quite possibly the most elegant, impeccably refined wine I have ever tasted here. Simply put, it is fabulous juice! In 2008 the percentage of Sangiovese is way down and Oreno is predominantly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, a decision that has paid off handsomely. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024...These superb releases from Sette Ponti include a fabulous version of the Oreno, perhaps the finest vintage ever made...96." WA 10/31/10
