"Subtle and classy on the nose, with flowers, blueberry, dried cherry and currant. Full-bodied and very polished, with refined tannins, pretty fruit and a light vanilla and coffee aftertaste. Builds on the palate. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Best after 2013. 3,415 cases made." (WS)

"The 2007 Oreno (50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot) is a silky, perfumed wine endowed with gorgeous layers of fruit that flow with notable weight and richness. This is an especially harmonious, seamless Oreno that is all class. The 100% new oak is felt slightly on the finish, but the wine should find an even better balance with some bottle age. This is a lovely effort. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2019." (WA)

"($110; a blend of 50% merlot, 30% cabernet sauvignon and 20% sangiovese; aged in all-new barriques; 36.7 g/l dry extract; 14.5% alcohol) Inky ruby. Aromas of cassis, cedar and graphite reminded me of cabernet sauvignon and little else. Enters the mouth very pure, displaying wonderfully textured red cherry, blackcurrant and smoky black plum flavors complicated by coffee and cocoa nuances. Finishes very smooth and long, with plenty of fruit to support its acids and firm tannins. Well done. (Kobrand Inc., New York NY)" (IWC)

"No doubt you will very much enjoy this super Tuscan blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. The wine is rich, smooth and opulent: The quality of the fruit is also excellent with background shadings of black mineral, mature cherry, clove, rum cake, smoked ham and cola." (WE)
