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.
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. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.
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.
