The refinement and balance of a Tuscan wine by Orma
The Orma estate, whose name means "footprint" in Italian, was founded by Antonio Moretti, who also owns the Sicilian estate, Tenuta Sette Ponti. Following extensive research to identify the best terroir, Antonio Moretti founded this estate in the province of Livorno, near Bolgheri, with the ambition of producing exceptional Tuscan wines that express the potential, authenticity and excellence of these great Italian vineyards.
Orma reigns over a 7.5-hectare vineyard, of which 5.5 are planted with vines. Facing south-west, this terroir is planted on deep soils composed predominantly of pebbles, clay and little sand, ideal conditions in a warm climate.
Orma is the estate’s first wine. Produced since 2005, Orma has received international recognition for its quality, power and balance since its first vintage.
The winter, marked by a few rainy spells and windy episodes, preceded a warm spring that favoured the development of the vegetative cycle. The vineyard benefits from a microclimate where the sunshine, the sea breeze, the mild temperatures and the low rainfall give the wine balance, finesse and optimum phenolic maturity.
Orma 2019 comprises a blend of Merlot (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) and Cabernet Franc (20%).
