Currants, blueberries and mint on the nose. Full body, with velvety tannins and juicy fruit. Tannic now, but will soften with age. Lots going on here. Very close to the superb 2008. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Try after 2013.
The 2009 Oreno is stunning. Layers of soft, well-articulated fruit caress the palate in this sweeping, dramatic wine. There is tons of depth, freshness and vitality in the glass, not to mention terrific overall balance. Sweet flowers, spices and licorice wrap around the seamless, captivating finish. Oreno is one of Italy’s most improved wines. The 2009, a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, represents another move in the right direction. (AG)
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, this grows in calcareous soils mixed with clay northwest of Arezzo, then ages in French oak. It’s ripe and intense, a sleek wine with black plum and floral strawberry scents, this has minerality to the tannin that sustains a clear Tuscan identity.
Tenuta Sette Ponti’s internationally styled blend is heavy and dense, a mirror image of the hot ’03 vintage. Thus it pours on the blackberry, plum and fudge flavors with gusto. This is a seriously fat, opulent red that would weigh in as a heavyweight at any wrestling match. Still, it’s delicious and quite balanced.
This seems extracted, with density to its black currant, blackberry and spice flavors. Though rich and ripe, there's a steely backbone and firm, refined tannins for support. Lingers with dark fruit and spice, with a hint of mineral. (BS)
