#36 James Suckling's Top 100 Wines of 2017
#6 James Suckling Top 100 Wines of Italy 2017
98 points, James Suckling
"Plenty of blackcurrant, blackberry and dark chocolate character with oyster shell and walnut undertones. Full body, extremely tight and structured with blueberry and light vanilla and coffee highlights. A gorgeous Oreno. Give this wine two or three years to come together."
95 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
"The 2015 Oreno is fabulous. Rich, sumptuous and yet very much medium in body, the 2015 has it all going on. Silky tannins and juicy, pliant fruit add to the wine's considerable appeal. Succulent dark cherry, plum, chocolate, mocha and licorice infuse this racy, showy Tuscan red. The 2015 is one of the best vintages of Oreno I have tasted of late."
94 points, Wine Spectator
"Rich and dense, but elegant, with a dusty swath of tannins coating the finish. Black cherry, black currant and mineral flavors hold court, with a fresh, balanced feel on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2019 through 2032. 5,500 cases made."
93 points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Oreno is Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. This nicely balanced effort shows rich color saturation and thick lines. The robust-blended red exhibits black fruit flavors followed by spice, tobacco and crushed granite or limestone. The bouquet is layered and deep. In terms of mouthfeel, the wine offers lots of density and power. It is firm and powerful and the tannins will require another few years of cellar aging before they soften. Oreno likes a warm vintage and it gets that in 2015."
