2006 SETTE PONTI ORENO
#15 on Wine Spectator's Top Wines of 2008
"Shows loads of black licorice, blackberry and toasty oak. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. Has wonderful concentration and balance. Structured. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best after 2013. 3,250 cases made." -96 Points - Wine Spectator
"The 2006 Oreno (50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot) combines elements of ripeness and firm, vibrant structure in a beautifully-balanced, gorgeous wine. Tar, smoke, licorice, new leather and menthol notes emerge, adding layers of expressiveness to the dark fruit. This is a powerful Oreno made in a less immediate style than the 2007. With time, though, the wineâs inner sweetness comes through, suggesting that this wine has a very bright future. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021." -93 Points - Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate

"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. The first, the Ponte Buriano, is nearby. 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."
"Like many Tuscan estates, Sette Ponti is multi-faceted. The 750-acre property encompasses a stud farm for race horses; breeding of native Tuscan Chiana cattle, which furnish the superb bistecca alla fiorentina; a preserve for the Cinta Senese, a rare breed of wild pig; and fields of sunflowers and maize. Viticulture is not new to the estate, but 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."
"A successful businessman, Dr. Moretti knew how to find the expertise he needed and, more important, how to learn from it. Once the decision to transform the vineyards was made, he engaged one of Italy's most innovative oenologists, Dr. Carlo Ferrini, and his assistant, Gioia Cresti. Dr. Ferrini consults independently for some of the great names of Tuscan viticulture, including Poliziano, Castello di Fonterutoli and Castello del Terriccio. After considerable research, he also engaged Gilbert Bouvet, one of France's most skilled viticulturalists, to source new vines and the appropriate rootstocks for the best clones of Sangiovese. Sette Ponti's varied soils, which are a mixture of clay, sand, limestone and the traditional stony galestro of Chianti, led Dr. Moretti to consulting agronomist Dr. Benedetto d'Anna, who guided preparation of the land for new plantings and creation of drainage channels without disturbing the natural balance of soil." -Importer
"The vineyards occupy a total of 150 acres and lie at an altitude of 200 to 300 metres (600 to 900 feet). The oldest vines on the estate were planted in 1935 by HRH the Count of Turin, Vittorio Emmanuele di Savoia. This five-acre plot, called the Vigna dell' Impero (the "Vineyard of the Empire"), is a hand-terraced vineyard planted primarily to Sangiovese vines interspersed with traditional Canaiolo, Colorino, Trebbiano and Malvasia. An adjacent 87-acre section of this vineyard, also of principally Sangiovese vines, was planted in the early1960s by Alberto Moretti. The soils on which this vineyard lies are mostly galestro and limestone" -Winery
2005 MEROI ROS DI BURI
"The Merlot Ros di Buri is the second selection of wine that is not chosen for the top of the line Dominim bottling. The 2005 is a beautifully balanced, seamless red loaded with sweet opulent fruit, grilled herbs, roasted coffee beans, plums and smoke. It possesses terrific depth as well as an inviting, luxurious texture. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2012." -91 points- Antonio Galloni- Wine Advocate
"The vineyards are between 10 to 40 years old. Harvest is collected in boxes, fermentation is done in steel tanks, with maceration of about 2 weeks. Malolactic fermentation in barrels and the wine is kept in the barrels for 15 months in 50% new French oak. The cultivation techniques are completely organic, without any use of pesticides and herbicides. Ruby color, berry fruit and spicy notes. Creamy and full in the mouth stretches long and persistently, with sweet tannin typical of Buttrio." -Winery
"The Meroi family owns 35 hectares of fine, old vineyards in the Colli Orientali del Friuli D.O.C., which has been compared to the Cote de Beaune of Burgundy for its ability to produce world class white wines. The output of this estate is - understandably - extremely limited, with only a handful of cases making it into the New York market. All Meroi wines show a combination of complexity and structure, and are known to have remarkable aging potential." -Importer
