Oreno Toscana IGT 2015

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Oreno Toscana IGT 2015 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

2015 has shown to be a very good vintage. After a mild and rainy winter, the vegetative start was in the second week of April with the arrival of spring and higher temperatures. The spring rains helped a lot the vegetation and ensured the water supply for the following summer. In June and mid-July temperatures were above the seasonal average, but by the end of July the temperatures lowered, returning to the average thanks to long rainy days, which was really good for the vines. The grapes were of an excellent quality. The wonderful structure and the elegant, soft tannins are the main elements of this vintage.

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.
