Orma - Bolgheri 'Passi di Orma' 2018


Orma is the acclaimed wine made at a single estate of the same name in Bolgheri, coastal Tuscany’s premier wine village. Originally purchased in the mid-1990’s by Arezzo-born business mogul, Antonio Moretti, Orma is said to be ‘well-born’ due to the estate’s location next to Tenuta dell’Ornellaia and amid the towering cypress trees of the famed Via Bolgherese. With a profile that finds equilibrium between power and finesse, Orma reflects both the unique terroir and the ambitious spirit of its territory.

Deep inky purple in its youth, Passi di Orma is accessible with soft, velvety tannin and heaps of ripe plum and blackberry, but it is also structured and serious.  Layers of decadent fruit are underscored by coffee, vanilla bean, and macchia mediterranea. A harmonious finish reaffirms the wine's poise and power.  This is a second wine that does not settle for second place.
