ORENO

Oreno, named after the river that runs through the property, is the flagship of Tenuta Sette Ponti. It is a wine of international renown, as evidenced by the American magazine Wine Spectator, which more than once has placed Oreno among the best wines of the annual Top 100 Wines, along with Wine Advocate by Robert Parker ratings.

It is characterized by having a "family tree" of total respect: created by a carefully studied blend of Merlot (from which it receives class and fineness), Cabernet Sauvignon (from which inherits strength and a full-body). Finally, there is an elegant touch of Petit Verdot.
