deep garnet, full-bodied wine. bold, tannic, and intense. in a pretty perfect stage of development - good balance of wood, dark berry and plum skin, rich farmland, leather. nice tartness keeps the finish lingering. happy Thursday to me.

Pretty great stuff. Inky black appearance and texture, with licorice, nuts, complex fruit on the nose. The mouth is strong with powerful tannins; it really lingers.

a little rustic on the nose, dried tea-leaves, currants with tight new wood textures. the palate offers immediate earth-like notes too, the currants, pronounced tannins, would be excellent with cheeses

Excellent with bold, big nose of ripe oranges and cherries. Lingers with noticeable tannins, finishes with a long edge. Terrific

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.

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.

The sizzling summer heat in Tuscany in 2003 overwhelmed this estateandrsquo;s early-ripening Merlot, so owner Antonio Moretti took consulting enologist Carlo Ferriniandrsquo;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 estateandrsquo;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.

Breathtaking. Dense and powerful, with grilled meat and currant aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, round and chewy; a massive and exciting. More muscular than the 2001. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2007.

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.

Gorgeous aromas of blackberry, currant, raspberry and just a hint of toasty oak and coffee. Full-bodied, with supervelvety tannins and wonderful balance. The finish goes on and on. 40 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 40 percent Merlot and 20 percent Sangiovese. Best after 2011.
