Oreno Toscana IGT 2013

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Oreno Toscana IGT 2013 play

Region: Italy / Tuscany
Grapes: Merlot 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon 40%, Petit Verdot 10%

Soils are a blend of clay, sand and the stony galestro limestone that is special to Tuscany. Grape clusters were reduced to one or two per stalk in May to assure maximum quality at harvest. In the winery, grapes were hand sorted and destemmed, and the skins were broken rather than crushed. Fermentation took place in a combination of temperature-controlled and lined, open-top tanks, with manual punching down and 25-day maceration, followed by malolactic fermentation. Lots were blended when the wine is placed in barriques and also at the first racking. The wine was aged 18 months in new French Allier barriques and 12 months in bottle.

harvest note

Vintage 2013 was less warm and cooler than 2012. The optimal temperature range between day and night enhanced and underlined the difference between the different varieties. Less concentration and much more elegance allowed Cabernet and Merlot to evolve better, and Sangiovese could reach the perfect level of maturation. Acidity is interesting but not invasive, tannis are important and will evolve in a superior quality in mouth. Picking up before the October rains, the harvest was not compromised and we got healthy grapes and compact bunches. Wines result then very complex and elegant at the nose, and at the same time characteristic and varietal. In the mouth the structure is harmonic and there are perfect proportions between acidity and tannins. The best features for a great year.

tasting note

The wine is ruby red with violet reflections and spicy aromas of blackberry. On the palate, ripe berries lead to spices and sweet oak on a full body with firm tannic structure.

food pairing

A delicious companion with full flavored meats, game and roast.
