IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

97 Point James Suckling - "A wine with terrific texture and balance. Very polished tannins that are etheral and harmonious. Full-bodied, yet fresh, this is about combining elegance with power. It's so Latour in style. Excellent depth. Better in 2017, but so fine now. Blend of cabernet sauvigon, merlot and petit verdot."

93 Point Wine & Spirits - "The Moretti family purchased this estate in Chianti Colli Aretini in the 1950s; today, fashion magnate Antonio Moretti oversees 124 vineyard acres. Oreno is the flagship wine, a blend of merlot with 40 percent cabernet sauvignon and 10 percent petit verdot aged 18 months in new French barriques. Rich and creamy, the wine maintains an agile weight, with lush purple fruit flavors seasoned with notes of anise and fennel. The flavors swirl around a firm core of tannins that channel the fruit toward a long and spicy finish."Spicy aromas of black fruit and touches of chocolate dominate the nose and palate. The wine is full-bodied, with supple tannins.A delicious companion to full-flavored meats, game and roasts.The estate of Sette Ponti lies in the heart of the Chianti zone, fifteen miles northwest of the city of Arezzo just past the village of San Giustino Valdarno. The Via del Monte, known locally as the Via dei Sette Ponti, leads into a beautiful hidden valley and to the estate. The name Sette Ponti, or "seven bridges," refers to the seven bridges crossing the Arno River on the road from Arezzo to Florence. Erected in the mid 13th century, it took nearly forty years to build, and is perceptible in the right far background of Leonardo DaVinci's Mona Lisa.

Tenuta Sette Ponti, is, like many Tuscan estates, multi-faceted. The 750-acre property supports livestock and mixed agriculture, and although viticulture is not new to the estate, winemaking is; the yield of the property's vineyards was until 1997 sold to various respected Tuscan wine producers, among them Piero Antinori. Dr. Moretti's enjoyment of wine led him to ask Antinori if the estate vineyards could produce great wines, and Antinori thought they could. The estate has since been transformed through the consultation of respected oenologist Carlo Ferrini and his assistant, Gioia Cresti; Gilbert Bouvet, one of France's most skilled viticulturalists; and agronomist Benedetto d'Anna.
