    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2003 vintage of this wine was ranked #5 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2005

    An internationally-styled, super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this wine's dense aromas of cassis and black stone fruit are offset by notes of herbs, spice and sweet oak which carry onto a ripe palate marked by firm tannic structure.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    James Suckling

    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. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

    The Wine Advocate

    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. It sits lightly for such a rich wine, suited to five or six years of cellaring.

    Bright, dark ruby red. Excellent smoke and dark cherry nose. Fine tannins, creamy butter and dark fruit flavors. Needs a little time in the bottle, but pleasant now with time to breath

    This is a great jem! It is a little young yet by itself but incredible with the BBQ ribs I had last weekend. This is my chance to stock up on a great super tuscan without having to pay over $100 for Sassicaia, my other favorite. Given the prominent 94 & 95 point score I am sure it won't last long. I wouldn't be surprised if this one appears in the end of year Wine Spectator Top 100 as well.

    Tried this yesterday. Extremely young in its development but showing great promise, I'm curious to see where it goes. At the moment, Sangiovese is prominent, meaning it has a while to integrate all it's component parts. If you insist on trying one now and one after 2014, decant for several hours.
