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.
The Moretti family purchased this estate in Chianti Colli Aretini in the 1950s; today, fashion magnate Antonio Moretti oversees 124 vineyard acres. Oreno is the flagship wine, a blend of merlot with 40 percent cabernet sauvignon and 10 percent petit verdot aged 18 months in new French barriques. Rich and creamy, the wine maintains an agile weight, with lush purple fruit flavors seasoned with notes of anise and fennel. The flavors swirl around a firm core of tannins that channel the fruit toward a long and spicy finish.
The 2013 Oreno is dark, creamy and voluptuous in the glass. Scorched earth, smoke tobacco, new French oak, licorice and herbs flesh out in a concentrated, structured wine that will benefit from a few years in the cellar. The tannins are a bit blenched today but otherwise, this is an impressive showing. (AG)
