The 2001 Oreno is simply a great wine. An inky ruby with purple highlights, intensely expansive and sweet on a fruit-rich nose which is loaded with smoky tar and graphite notes, it is packed and powerful on the palate with a density and concentration which are cunningly concealed by the plush and caressing texture, the superb balance and exceptional length of the finish and aftertaste. Drink: 2005-2025.

Dark, with fantastic aromas of currant, blackberry, spice and lightly toasty oak. Full-bodied, with very well-integrated tannins and a texture as fine as the best cashmere from Scotland. Superb. Needs time in the bottle to show its full potential. One of the new hot wines of Tuscany. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best after 2008.

Oreno is a sexy blend of sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon and merlot grown in a mix of limestone and the galestro-schist soils common to Tuscany. At first pass, this rsquo;05 is fairly closed, save for a dark scent of cassis and hard-edged minerality. That structure relents slightly with air, the wine becoming more savory, with a black mushroom earthiness contrasting the fresh character of the fruit. Impeccably balanced, with lasting flavors of wild cherries and earth, this will drink beautifully for 20 years or more.

The sizzling summer heat in Tuscany in 2003 overwhelmed this estate's early-ripening Merlot, so owner Antonio Moretti took consulting enologist Carlo Ferrini's advice to omit the customary 25 percent Merlot in the blend. The result was an even mix of the best Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese from the estate's 136 acres of vineyards, which include some 70-year-old Sangiovese vines. Oreno is aged in new oak barrels for 18 months, is not filtered before it is bottled, and rests for a year before being released.

A blockbuster wine with finely tuned renderings of coffee, tobacco, spice and leather, Oreno requires a rare steak cooked on a mesquite grill or something similarly big and bold. In the mouth, this Sangiovese-Merlot-Cabernet blend delivers loads of spice that leaves a lasting impression thanks its firm tannins. Drink after 2010.

Winemaker's Notes:

By tenutasetteponti.it ORENO Oreno, which takes its name from the river that crosses the estate and the hamlet where the Farmhouse is found, is the estate’s flagship wine. Fruit of the blend of Merlot structure and Cabernet Sauvignon class, brought together with the elegance of Sangiovese, it expresses best the potentiality of the territory and the Moretti family’s idea of wine. Classification: I.G.T. Production Zone: Central Tuscany Varieties: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese Exposure: Southern Average Age of Wine: From 15 – 20 years Altitude: 230 – 250 meters above sea level Trellis: Cordon Number of vines per ha! : 6.666 Soil characteristics: Calcareous, clay rich in stony galestro Production per Hectare: 4500 kilo Vinification: 25 days of maceration With a manual punching Down of the cap Aging: In French oak Bottle aging prior to release: 12 months Characteristics: Dark ruby red colour tinged with decisive violet tones, expresses on the nose incredible sensations of fullness and complexity with a note of ripe berries that give sensations of chocolate and flashes of balsamic. Oreno is a captivating wine, rich in structure but decisively dynamic, enhanced by the nuances of new oak and an interminable finish. Suggested Serving Temperature: 18° Pairing: Full flavoured meats, game and roasts
