Connie Wilson, bookkeeper says: Look no futher than Tenuta Sette Ponti’s ORENO for a fine example of Super Tuscan wines. This Bordeaux blend of Merlot, Cabernet and Petit Verdot scores 96 points from James Suckling for its spicy aromas of black fruit and chocolate, with full body and supple tannins.
Tenuta Sette Ponti is located in the heart of the historic Chianti winegrowing region. The Estate is named for the seven medieval bridges crossing the Arno River from Arezzo to Florence, one of which can be seen in the background of Leonardo DaVinci’s Mona Lisa. The 750 acre estate produces some of Tuscany’s most innovative and world-class Super Tuscans. A world class wine at a great price!
JS96: "There is a purity of fruit in this young Tuscan red with flowers, citrus fruit and currants. Full body, with firm and silky tannins that are ultra-fine and wonderfully polished. The structure builds to a racy finish. This is a Bordeaux blend that is all in harmony. Give it time as the tannins and fruit melt together. Try in 2016."
