Add to favourites

Orma is a highly-acclaimed and world-renowned single estate in Bolgheri, Tuscany. Purchased in 2004 by Tenuta Sette Ponti owner, Dr. Antonio Moretti, Orma is a 5.5 hectare estate that is nestled in Bolgheri, coastal Tuscany’s outstanding wine region, between two illustrious neighbours, Sassacaia and Ornellaia. Bolgheri has long boasted an impressive reputation worldwide, earning its prestige as one of the most impressive and creative production areas in the world of wine, noted for its experimentation with innovative blends of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Orma’s debut vintage in 2005 received the stellar reviews its privileged location demands and today, Orma is recognised alongside Bolgheri’s finest wines. “This Bordeaux blend from Bolgheri is a challenger to Sassicaia and Ornellaia.” — James Suckling. The estate itself is located in the district of Castagneto Carducci within the Bolgheri DOC. Southwest-facing, the vineyard is planted in deep soils with abundant pebble and clay content with little sand, an exceptional environment for the plantings of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc to produce richly defined and concentrated wines.

Tasting Note

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.
