Oreno Toscana IGT 2017

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Oreno Toscana IGT 2017 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

Tuscany experienced a fairly frigid winter, in absence of snow and rains below average. The vegetative growth has been anticipated by a surprising spring, very hot and untimely. Given the hot temperatures, the flowering took place quickly and without interference. The season continued with high temperatures for some periods of the summer, alternating some rains. The vineyards, which enjoy a good maturity and an excellent balance during all the phases of the year, well endured the dry season. Sangiovese, which could be prone to damage caused by drought, did not suffer thanks to irrigations, taking water from the two lakes inside the estate. September started with sunny days alternated with some rains which brought to a very good technological and phenolic maturity which was able to guarantee structured and elegant wines, faithful expression of the vintage.

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.
