Tenuta Sette Ponti Oreno 2004
Fabulous aromas of ripe blackberry, cappuccino and toasty oak. Full-bodied, with masses of fruit and supervelvety tannins. Long and gorgeous. All there. Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon.
A wine that gives you everything you could possibly want: complexity, elegance, intensity and a long, creamy finish. Oreno is a 50-25-25 blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese (which prove to be perfect proportions in this case). It exhibits aromas of bright cherry, prune, plum, espresso grinds and cedar wood.
The 2004 Oreno (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese) is bursting with generous super-ripe dark fruit and sweet toasted oak notes, showing much concentration, length and vitality on the palate, as well as finessed tannins to round out the finish. Made in a more restrained style than the 2003, it will also require several years of bottle age to come together.
