Description

The flagship wine of Tenuta Sette Ponti, this Merlot-dominant blend has an illustrious history of big scores far out of step with its very reasonable price tag. James Suckling rates this 2016 the best Oreno of all! 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet and 10% Petit Verdot, the vines were meticulously managed to one or two grape clusters per stalk to achieve maximum quality at harvest. The grapes spent 25 days on skins before spending 18-months in French Oak and a further 12-months ageing in bottle before release. We couldn't agree more with James Sucklings comments "Deep, dark and profound. Takes you on a long journey and shows you its true character."

Smells

Dark brooding nose of damson plum, Mediterranean herbs, cassis, liquorice and warm earth.

Tastes

Bold and densely concentrated, with ripe curranty flavours and a bed of fine, structural tannins lending serious architecture to the palate. Built for the long haul, it can be enjoyed young from a decanter or will be best from 2025 onwards.
