Today we are delighted to offer the spellbinding 2019 Sette Ponti Oreno. Scoring a knockout 99 points from James Suckling who calls it “one of the best modern-day Orenos so far”, this is a wine you do not want to miss. With a price tag of just £275 per 6 in bond, this is one of the best priced wines in the world. Boasting “fantastic aromas of blackberries, currants, minerals, violets and graphite”, sumptuous, silky tannins and extraordinary length that “goes on for minutes” you will struggle to find another Super Tuscan that offers such superb value.

Oreno is a Super Tuscan through and through, this wine punches well above its weight in terms of quality and is hugely appealing compared to its peers on price. Oreno is a Bordeaux Blend, assembled with 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot. It combines immensity and power with poise, structure and polish. It is matured in French oak barrels and aged in bottle for a year before release, aligning it with Tignanello, Sassicaia and Ornellaia in style and quality, but at a fraction of the price.
 
Tenuta Sette Ponti lies hidden in a valley in the Arezzo province of the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany, at the end of Via del Monte known locally as Via dei Sette Ponti. The winery and road are named after the seven medieval bridges which cross the Arno river on the road from Arezzo to Florence, the same landscape used as the backdrop for the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, which features the Ponte Buriano.

Previously owned by the Princesses Margherita and Cristina Savoia dâ Aosta, the central vineyards were bought by the architect Alberto Moretti in 1957 as a hunting retreat. Today it is owned and operated by his son, Antonio Moretti, the luxury goods entrepreneur. The first vintage was produced in 1998 alongside a team of gifted oenologists, including Gilbert Bouvet and Dr. Benedetto dâ Anna. Since this time, Sette Ponti has risen to be regarded amongst the highest echelon of Super Tuscans.

Oreno is the cantinas flagship wine, named after a small river running through the Estate and has gained reputation as a cult wine by discerning consumers. The acclaimed 2019 vintage has allowed the wine to blossom once again. This will be superb to drink from 2025, we highly recommend not missing out.
