Category: Italy, TOSCANA, Tenuta Sette Ponti, Valdarno, 2012

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

A wine with terrific texture and balance. Very polished tannins that are etheral and harmonious. Full-bodied, yet fresh, this is about combining elegance with power. It’s so Latour in style. Excellent depth. Better in 2017, but so fine now. Blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot. 97 Points – August 2015

Robert Parker Tasting Note

Tenuta Sette Ponti’s 2012 Oreno is a very different wine compared to its 2011 predecessor. This was also a warm vintage, yet the fruit is more masculine and sober in this vintage. The wine shows harder lines and a more determined style with shapely tannins and long flavors of dark spice, blackberry and bitter chocolate. Oreno should age beautifully over the next ten years. The blend is 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot

93 Points – Monica Larner, September 2015

Wine Spectator Tasting Note

This is perfumed, sinewy and taut, boasting cherry, black currant, earth, wild herb and tobacco aromas and flavours. The tannins are assertive, but this shows balance overall, as well as a saline mineral element on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2017 through 2026

93 points  – Bruce Sanderson – July 2015

Food Pairing

Full flavoured meats, game and roasts
