External Reviews for Oreno Igt. Tenute Sette Ponti
Spicy aromas of black fruit and touches of chocolate dominate the nose and palate. The wine is full-bodied, with supple tannins. A delicious companion to full-flavored meats, game and roasts.

The blend for this Oreno is 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot from the oldest vines on the property. At harvest the clusters are handpicked, sorted, destemmed. Maceration lasts 25 days and then the wine is placed in new, 225-liter Allier oak barriques for a period of twelve to eighteen months. A first blending of lots takes place when the wine is placed in barrique; a second at the first racking. The finished wine is bottled without filtration and rests one year prior to release.

Has wonderful concentration and balance. Structured. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best after 2013.” ON SALE!!
