INTRODUCTION

Oreno, which takes its name from the river that crosses the estate and the hamlet where the Farmhouse is found, is the estate’s flagship wine. The blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot gives good structure and elegance, and expresses best the potential of the territory and the Moretti Cuseri family’s idea of wine. Grapes are grown in a calcareous, clay-rich soil abundant in the stony galestro limestone that is special to Tuscany.

TASTING NOTES

A dark, intense ruby red colour tinged with dappled violet tones, Oreno is a captivating wine. Its incredible complexity and fullness are clear from the first wafts of the bouquet. The ripe fruit notes of ripe berries, blackberries, and black currant are elegantly married with heady notes of chocolate and coffee. Its elegant tannins and rich, powerful structure make for a sublime wine whose very long finish one can luxuriate in.
