Sette Ponti or "seven bridges," refers to the 7 bridges crossing the Arno River on the road from Arezzo to Florence. Blend of 50% merlot, 40% cab sauvignon and 10% petit verdot, aged 18 months in new French oak. Had this ‘12 sitting in my cellar. Beautiful big pronounced fruit and spice aromas. Cherry and currants with tobacco and oak spice. Smooth and refined tannins, well structures long finish ending with mineral and earthy character. Wow!!

Similar to January but starting to sense the ‘06 will be one of those earlier maturing Orenos. Brunello maraschino cherry. Class act but after 2 this week thinking drink up.

I opened a ‘12 about three years ago and it was completely shut down. Additional time in the bottle has served this well. A completely different wine. Significant power and depth combined with finesse and style. A 50% Merlot/40% Cab/10% PV Super Tuscan, it is absolutely exquisite. Rich crimson fruit and dark chocolate accelerate through the mid palate and linger with a lengthy gripping finish.

‘06 impressed. Needed a full hour to sort out - do not P&P - but when it did, iodine-infused black and red sour cherries. Beautifully framed, nicely lifted. Nose of dusty Brunello. years to go.

Oreno, takes its name from the river crossing the estate where the farmhouse is found. Blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cab Sauv & 10% Petit Verdot, aged 18 mos in new French oak. Went to a tasting, had ‘14 & ‘15 side by side. Big ripe berry fruit aromas with sweet spice notes. On the palate rich blackberry & cherry flavors with cacao, tobacco, oak & flinty tones. Firm big tannins needing time showing great aging potential, lingering ending with succulent earthy mineral character. ‘15 much better. Tasting Sample!

Blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cab Sauv & 10% Petit Verdot, aged 18 months in new French oak. Went to a tasting, had ‘14 & ‘15 side by side. Very dark enticing red with concentrated aromas of dark fruits & earthy notes. Flavors of cherry & plum with tobacco and spice. Firm but approachable tannins, medium length ending with a bit of spice as the finish builds. Best to drink ‘14 now. Tasting Sample.
