Tenuta Sette Ponti Oreno 2012

Tenuta Sette Ponti Oreno 750ml 2012     
Sku: 15840

The soils that produce the fruit for Oreno are a blend of clay, sand and the stony galestro limestone that is special to Tuscany. Clusters are reduced to one or two per stalk in May to assure maximum quality when they are hand harvested in autumn. In the winery, grapes are hand sorted and destemmed. Fermentation occurs in a combination of temperature-controlled and lined, open-top tanks, followed by malolactic fermentation. Oreno is aged in French Allier barriques and in bottle before release.

Tasting notes
Spicy aromas of black fruit and touches of chocolate dominate the nose and palate. The wine is full-bodied, with supple tannins.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 95 points
This is perfumed, sinewy and taut, boasting cherry, black currant, earth, wild herb and tobacco aromas and flavors. 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. From Italy.-B.S.

Food pairing
A delicious companion to full-flavored meats, game and roasts.
