Oreno 2003 Sette Ponti
|Grape||Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese|
|Label||Slightly Bin stained|
The deeply-colored 2003 Oreno (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese) is a powerful effort redolent of tobacco, scorched earth and super-ripe, jammy, dark fruit. Warm and ample on the palate, it is a big, backward wine with plenty of structure and a brooding personality. A few years of bottle age may help round out the slightly drying tannins present on the finish.

Breathtaking. Dense and powerful, with grilled meat and currant aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, round and chewy; a massive and exciting wine. More muscular than the 2001. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon.
