Shows loads of black licorice, blackberry and toasty oak. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. Has wonderful concentration and balance. Structured. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best after 2013. *#15 of the Top 100 Wines of 2008* (JS)
Lead pencil, currants and berries with intense leather and cedar. Full and juicy. Very long and insane.
The 2006 Oreno (50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot) combines elements of ripeness and firm, vibrant structure in a beautifully-balanced, gorgeous wine. Tar, smoke, licorice, new leather and menthol notes emerge, adding layers of expressiveness to the dark fruit. This is a powerful Oreno made in a less immediate style than the 2007. With time, though, the wine’s inner sweetness comes through, suggesting that this wine has a very bright future. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021. (AG)
A much more powerful side of Tuscany comes through in the 2006 Sette Ponti a Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot from vineyards near Arezzo. The 2006 still boasts considerable power. (AG)
