ORENO 2021 IGT Toscana
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer SETTE PONTI
There have been 20 previous Vintages releases of Oreno dating back to December 2010 and this 2021 is one of the best so far. This blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot was aged for 18 months in small barrels. Extremely deep intense purple- ruby colour. The nose is very intense, slightly earthy and gently cedary with mineral-tinged, bright, ripe, plum-cherry-cassis fruit. Dry, medium-full to full bodied, dense and well structured with slightly spicy, intense, ripe, bright, still youthful, plum-cherry-cassis fruit flavours along with a lingering, harmonious, rich, mouthfilling finish. It has 15% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L130323 on the back label. Is this the ultimate steak red - stay tuned. CSPC 735597
