The 2003 vintage of this wine was ranked #5 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2005
An internationally-styled, super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this wine's dense aromas of cassis and black stone fruit are offset by notes of herbs, spice and sweet oak which carry onto a ripe palate marked by firm tannic structure.
"No doubt you will very much enjoy this super Tuscan blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese. The wine is rich, smooth, and opulent. The quality fo the fruit is also excellent with background shadings of black mineral, mature cherry, clove, rum cake, smoked ham and cola.
"Subtle and classy on the nose, with flowers, blueberry, dried cherry and currant. Full-bodied and very polished, with refined tannins, pretty fruit and a light vanilla and coffee aftertaste. Builds on the palate. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Best after 2013. 3,415 cases made"
"The 2007 Oreno (50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot) is a silky, perfumed wine endowed with gorgeous layers of fruit that flow with notable weight and richness. This is an especially harmonious, seamless Oreno that is all class. The 100% new oak is felt slightly on the finish, but the wine should find an even better balance with some bottle age. This is a lovely effort. Anticipated maturity 2010-2019."
