Tenuta Sette Ponti, Oreno IGT, Tuscany, Italy, 2021

Producer Profile

In the 90s Antonio Moretti Cuseri, driven by a passion and an interest in wine he had since he was young, took control of his father’s winery, and worked alongside the best viticulturists and enologists to evaluate the suitability of the land for the production of quality wines, thus launching his own brand.

He stopped selling the grapes to other producers and in 1998 released his first label: Crognolo, which is made from clones of the historic Sangiovese vines in the estate’s oldest vineyard, Vigna dell’Impero. For the first time, it’s all about Tenuta Sette Ponti, named for the seven bridges that extend over the Arno River on the road from Florence to Arezzo. Consequently, one of these bridges happens to be the Buriano, which is depicted in the celebrated Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo Da Vinci. In 1999, Antonio released the first vintage of Oreno, a wine that after only three harvests reached the top of the most important world wine rankings. In-depth research, an incredible love for vines and for age-old expertise about the art of winemaking has made it possible to make exceedingly high quality, organic wines in line with Tuscan traditions. In 2018, Antonio Moretti Cuseri’s children began collaborating with their father. Amedeo is the winery director and Italian market manager, and Alberto is the communications and export director. This new generation represents the company’s strong values, an expression of tradition and the great passion passed down by their father. A fresh and new vision of wine is strengthened by high-quality wines boasting an international flair, consistently gaining recognition all over the world, and becoming symbols of Italian excellence and authentic style. The Moretti Cuseri family’s wines have become mainstays in the lifestyle, fashion, and event industries as well.


This label was born in 1999 with the idea of creating an elegant Bordeaux blend with a Tuscan touch. Relying on renowned nurseryman Gilbert Bouvet, they graft adult vineyards with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, which are well adapted to the Tuscan terrain. The name comes from a stream, Oreno, which runs through the estate, right in the area richest in clay where precisely our Merlot plants grow. While in the soils with a greater presence of pebbles, which ensure perfect drainage and perform a self-regulating function of temperature and humidity, Cabernet Sauvignon finds its natural place. Perfectly complementing the blend is Petit Verdot, traditionally used as a carrier of spicy notes and flavour intensity. Vines are on average 20 to 30 years old around 250 metres above sea level, cordon trellis grown.


A temperature-controlled fermentation and maceration for about 25 days with a manual punching down of the cap, followed by aging in small French Barrique for 18 months, 30% of which is new.

Tasting Note

Oreno conquers with its extreme intensity and olfactory complexity rich in fruity notes of ripe small red fruits and berry jam, fused with balsamic notes of eucalyptus, chocolate, cocoa and spices. The mouthfeel is enveloping, warm and soft, the elegant tannins and long, unforgettable persistence enhanced by a delicious savouriness. The body, finesse and harmony make it a wine of extraordinary potential.
