#17. Orma is an increasingly important property in Bolgheri, also owned by fashion magnate Antonio Moretti Cuseri. This wine is an absolute steal in a world where Sassicaia 2015 fetches $200+! “Orma is now making a Bordeaux blend at the same level of quality as its neighbors [e.g. Sassicaia, Ornellaia]. The last two vintages [2015 and 2016] are genuine “wow” wines…So ripe blackberry and incense. Opens up beautifully in the glass. So perfumed. Full body and seamless tannins that coat your palate with a silky texture. Wonderfully framed with complex fruit.”

Wine Advocate

Brooding and dark, with a nicely compact core, the 2016 Orma shows generous concentration and good density at the back. The mouthfeel is rich and thickly textured. The wine produces notes of green olive, black olive, caper and smoke. The blend here is 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc. This is a powerful wine with 15% alcohol that underlines its potency
