    2019 Tenuta Sette Ponti Toscana

    Currently the highest scoring Super Tuscan to emerge from the 2019 vintage, Tenuta Sette Ponti have announced their flagship wine Oreno will have a special label in 2019 to celebrate 20 years since its first release.

    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.

    Like the famous Galatrona of Petrolo, Oreno is made predominantly of Merlot, with the rest being Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Proprietor Antonio Moretti has increased the amount of Merlot in the blend in 2019, which has clearly paid dividends, and this massive score shows just how good Merlot from Tuscany's Val di Sopra region can be.

    Wow. Fantastic aromas of blackberries, currants, minerals, violets and graphite. Full-bodied with firm, silky tannins that are incredibly polished and intense, yet ever so refined and integrated in the wine. It goes on for minutes. The is one of the best modern-day Orenos so far. Best in 2025 and onwards. 99 Points James Suckling
