Subtle currant, light sandalwood and some cherry aromas. Full-bodied, yet fine-tuned and polished with tannins that melt beautifully into the wine. Long and focused. Beauty and balance to this. Better after 2022.

This wine is built on solid foundations and shows a rich vinous footprint. The fruit is black and concentrated, as is to be expected of a wine of this ambition, and it sits with a dark and almost impenetrable appearance in the glass. Orma shows a careful balance between fruit and oak spice, and both are calibrated to achieve high sensorial impact and intensity. If you're looking for the classic Tuscan blended red with sunshine and power, this release of 25,000 bottles is for you.- ML

This is easy to love with sweet red berry fruit and a silky texture that suggests the generosity of Merlot is taking the lead at this early stage. These are given further form and persistency by ripe tannins with black olives and saffron spice hints that run underneath.

Delighting critics and connoisseurs alike, this single-estate Super Tuscan has received many awards and accolades.

Winery

Orma

Purchased in 1996 by Antonio Moretti of Tenuta Sette Ponti, Orma is located next to Ornellaia in the heart of Bolgheri within the district of Castagneto Carducci. Its 5.5 hectares of vineyards, between the hills and the sea, is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot on primarily sand and gravel soils, perfect for these varieties to thrive.
