Orma is deep ruby with garnet reflections. On the nose, the wine demonstrates presence and intensity of aroma. Notes of red and black fruit are supported by sweet spice, cocoa, dry earth, mediterranean herbs and tobacco. On the Palate, Orma is elegant and dense. Orma's sturdy, yet ripe tannin structure lends the wine a velvety texture. Bright acidity reflects the wine's Italian terroir and keeps the wine balanced through a long finish. Expect excellent ageing potential from Orma.
Orma is a powerful red wine that matches wonderfully with full-flavored dishes, particularly those based around game and roasts. However the wine's delicate layers of flavor coupled with purity of fruit make it an ideal companion to ripe cheeses, or simply as a Vino da Meditazione as well.
Blend: 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc
James Suckling, 95 Points - This is a dense and powerful red with lots of currant and blackberry aromas. Full body and creamy tannins, yet ripe and pretty. Lovely length and beauty. Needs a year or two to come together. Try after 2020.
