Tenuta Sette Ponti Oreno IGT Toscana, 2011


Category: Italy, TOSCANA, Tenuta Sette Ponti, Valdarno, 2011

The Sette Ponti Estate is situated near the historical city of Arezzo in the heart of Tuscany’s Chianti country. The name refers to the seven bridges that cross the river Arno on the road to Florence. The Moretti family bought the estate in the 1960s and it has been Antonio Moretti who has transformed the fortunes of the vineyards working alongside one of Italy’s most innovative oenologists, Carlo Ferrini. Oreno hails from Castagneto Carducci, the area of Bolgheri which produces its most- acclaimed wines.

Tasting Note

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 nuances of balsam. Oreno is a captivating wine, rich in structure but decisively dynamic, enhanced by the nuances of new oak and an interminable finish. Vegan.

James Suckling Tasting Note

There is a purity of fruit in this young Tuscan red, with flowers, citrus fruit and currants. Full body with firm, silky tannins that are ultra-fine and wonderfully polished. The structure builds to a racy finish. This is a Bordeaux blend that is all in harmony. Give it time: the tannins and fruit will melt together.  96 Points – November 2013

Robert Parker Tasting Note

The 2011 Oreno (Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon-Petit Verdot) shows initial ripeness with aromas of prune, dark plum and blackberry preserves. The effect is soft, rich and enduring. Chocolate and dark spice fill in the rear. This wine will appeal to those who appreciate the round and plump side of Italian reds. It is a fruit forward expression with big concentration and extraction that is further defined by the spicy oak tones that appear throughout. 92 Points – Monica Larner, September 2015

Wine Spectator Tasting Note

Though rich, this red is also vibrant, balanced and full of generous black cherry and blackberry flavours. Hints of spice and smoke add accents to the long, satisfying finishBest from 2015 through 2025

92 points  – Bruce Sanderson – October 2013

Full flavoured meats, game and roasts
