Description

This is a superior quality Super Tuscan.  I would be hesitant to say that it belongs in the same conversation as the "First Growth" Super Tuscans.  But, it certainly could be considered a "Super Second".   I would be absolutely ruined if I could drink a wine like this on a regular basis.  2019 is young for this wine.  Plan to cellar it while you enjoy the more approachable Crognolo or some other Italian Gem that you will find in this collection. 

Winemaker Notes

Dark ruby red color tinged with decisive violet tones, expresses on the nose incredible sensations of fullness and complexity with a note of ripe berries the give sensations of chocolate and nuances of balsam. Oreno is a captivating wine, rich in structure but decisively dynamic, enhanced by the nuances of new oak and an interminable finish.

A delicious companion to full-flavored meats, game and roasts.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling 99 Points
Wow. Fantastic aromas of blackberries, currants, minerals, violets and graphite. Full-bodied with firm, silky tannins that are incredibly polished and intense, yet ever so refined and integrated in the wine. It goes on for minutes. The is one of the best modern-day Orenos so far. Best in 2025 and onwards.
