"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." —winemaker

Blend: 50% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc

Wine Anthology review:
The 2011 Orma is a Bordeaux-style red blend in the fashion of super Tuscans like Ornellaia and Sassicaia. With its three-pronged attack of Cabernet, Cab Franc, and Merlot, it's got everything it needs and more in the way of structure, flavor, and texture and shows off an effortless balance of its component parts. This 2011 has already hit its drinking window, so don't be reluctant to open it now. Otherwise, it'll last at least another 10 years in the cellar!
"A gorgeous, sleek wine with super-polished tannins and fabulous fruit. It's full but so refined and sexy. It goes on for minutes. Really fine. What a wine. This Bordeaux blend from here is the best ever. Better in 2016 but great now." —JamesSuckling.com

"The 2011 Orma (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) is a fantastic wine that excels on all levels. It shows integrity, intensity and generosity at impressively high levels. This was a warm vintage but the wine still offers an impeccable sense of balance and profound inner beauty. Morello cherry, dried blackberry, leather, tobacco and spice enter the equation. Orma delivers soft tannins and a lingering sense of richness and density." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
