2013 Tenuta Sette Ponti "Oreno" Toscana
A wine with terrific texture and balance. Very polished tannins that are etheral and harmonious. Full-bodied, yet fresh, this is about combining elegance with power. It's so Latour in style. Excellent depth. Better in 2017, but so fine now. Blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot.
From the winery: Oreno, which takes its name from the river that crosses the Ponti estate and the hamlet where the farmhouse is found, is the estate's flagship wine. With ample fruit from the Merlot, structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon, brought together with the elegance of Petit Verdot, it expresses best the potential of the territory and the Moretti family's idea of wine. Dark ruby red in color, tinged with decisive violet tones, it expresses on the nose incredible sensations of richness and complexity with a note of ripe berries that give sensations of chocolate and nuances of balsamic. Oreno is a captivating wine, rich in structure but decisively dynamic, enhanced by the influences of new oak and an interminable finish.
