Italian businessman Antonio Moretti owns 158 acres, located in four separate parcels, in Chianti's Colli Aretini region southeast of Florence. Moretti hired enologist Carlo Ferrini to help craft the flagship red, Oreno, a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Sette Ponti also makes Crognolo, which is Sangiovese with a dollop of Merlot. It's the winery's debut on our Top 100. From Tuscany
The 2001 Oreno is simply a great wine. An inky ruby with purple highlights, intensely expansive and sweet on a fruit-rich nose which is loaded with smoky tar and graphite notes, it is packed and powerful on the palate with a density and concentration which are cunningly concealed by the plush and caressing texture, the superb balance and exceptional length of the finish and aftertaste.
