Tenuta Sette Ponti Oreno 2016
|Brand||Tenuta Sette Ponti|
Wine AdvocateMerlot (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (40%) and Petit Verdot (10%) are assembled with precision and balance. The 2016 Oreno is a fantastic expression from Tuscany that blossoms with each swirl and tilt of the glass. This is a full-bodied red with generous aromas of black fruit, spice, tobacco and soft spice. The wine rests in new French barrique for 18 months.
Wine SpectatorFocused, dripping with black cherry and blueberry fruit, accented by leather, spice and earth notes. This is broad-shouldered and supple, with sweet fruit and a solid structure converging on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2028.
Wine EnthusiastDark-skinned berry, underbrush and culinary spice aromas lead the nose while the bold palate offers cassis, sage and prune jam. Tight, grainy tannins grip the finish.
