Oreno, named after the river that runs through the property, is the flagship of Tenuta Sette Ponti. 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.

Harvest Note
The winter season at Tenuta Sette Ponti recorded temperatures in line with the seasonal average, low and steady with daily rises in the hottest hours. Rainfall was present and moderate, sufficient to restore water reserves in the vineyards. Spring arrived slightly early, dictating the timing of vine planting, with returns of cold weather and minimal rain. Grazed by a late frost that, however, left no significant damage.
Tasting Note
Ruby red with violet hues. Intense and broad aromatics, where notes of succulent red fruits initially emerge and then give way to spicy characters of licorice and roasted coffee. Powerful and structured, with velvety tannins in balance with a vibrant, crisp character. Finish of remarkable length and savoriness
Food Pairing
Fine meats, game noble, braised red meats

About the Grape

Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon is adaptable to various growing conditions, and is known for its low yield and late ripeness. It generally produces full-bodied wines with substantial acidity and tannins.
Merlot makes plump, succulent wines to drink young or opulently massive wines for aging. Has silky, blackberry and currant fruit, with spice, earth, tobacco and chocolate notes, and soft tannins.
