Georgina Hindle writes:  New to the Place de Bordeaux this year, the second wine to the flagship Oreno. This is darkly scented with a floral-touched nose, blackcurrants, violet potpourri and liquorice. So juicy and seductive on the palate, this has a depth which is beguiling, layering the dark fruit, herbal and salty flavours on the tongue - a sweet, sticky almost liquorice blackcurrant added to by a black pepper and minty aftertaste giving some minerality to the palate. Nicely structured and round. This is ample and fresh - easy to drink with lots to like. Ageing for 12-14 months in tonneaux and barriques.  Drinking 2023 - 2033  - Decanter 91

James Button writes:  Oreno's second wine is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot – clones of vines from the estate's Vigna dell Impero, which was planted in 1935 – in Valdarno. The wine is matured in small oak barrels (partly used) for 14 months. The intense currant and spice attack is followed by a wave of fresh acidity and ripe cherry. It's well balanced, and the long finish offers some herbal and spice notes.  Drinking 2023 -2029  - Decanter 90

James Suckling writes:  A soft and caressing red with a full body and plush, finely woven tannins. Plenty of dark cherry, mulberry, chocolate and some bark. Citrus zest and dried flowers, too. Lightly chewy at the end. 95% sangiovese and 5% merlot. Try in 2025.

Bruce Sanderson writes:  A firm red, featuring cherry and blackberry flavors, with mineral and tobacco accents. Shows depth and balance, with a solid layer of tannins lining the finish. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2025.   - Wine Spectator 90

90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot Clay and sand soils as well as Tuscany’s special stony galestro limestone, combined with ideal sun exposure and a climate tempered by the Mediterranean, provide an ideal climate for the Sangiovese grape.

Low yields of excellent-quality hand harvested fruit ensure a rich and concentrated result. Following hand sorting and destemming, grapes are fermented in a combination of temperature controlled and lined open-top tanks. Crognolo is aged in French Allier barriques (10- 14 months) and in bottle (5-6 months).
