Oreno Toscana IGT 2016

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Oreno Toscana IGT 2016 play

Region: Italy / Tuscany
Grapes: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot

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

The 2016 harvest was a winemakers dream in terms of quality. Quantity however was down from the previous season due to a rough growing season. The season saw cooler then average temperatures that led to a slight reduction in yields. This was followed by a very warm and dry summer - with only one rainfall in August to help the vines. Harvesting began in the beginning of October and the resulting wines have wonderful flavors with exceptional profiles.

tasting note

Intense deep ruby red. Great aromatic richness and a complex bouquet of black currant, small black fruits and delicate balsamic notes. Velvety tannins and aromas of blackberry that fill the palate with lingering persistence.

food pairing

A delicious companion with full flavored meats and roasts.
