2007 Tenuta Sette Ponti Oreno


The estate of Sette Ponti lies in the heart of the Chianti zone, fifteen miles northwest of the city of Arezzo just past the village of San Giustino Valdarno.

The 2007 Oreno is classic Super Tuscan blend composed of 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot.

On the nose I get generous and perfumed notes of cassis, black plum, flowers, dried herb, and a touch of vanilla. When the wine opens up it reveals some really nice black cherry notes as well.

It's a densely structured wine that offers up rich flavors of ripe black cherry, currant, mineral, smoked meat,  and touches of sweet oak and spice on the finish. This wine is still very much a baby and the presence of oak at this stage in the game is still very much prevalent in it's drinking experience. However, I see this wine aging quite nicely because it has such generous fruit to match the intensity of the tannin and acid. Very nice wine.....Very nice indeed. 92+ points
