Orma Toscana 2005

SKU 35322


This deep-colored gem has evolved in French barriques for 12 months then aged in bottle for a further year. Deep, intense ruby in color, this is a sumptuous, elegant blend fully expressing the land it hails from. The bouquet recalls ripe red fruit and blackberries, with notes of Mediterranean vegetation and eucalyptus and a subtle nuance of baked bell peppers from the component varieties. Structured, velvet-textured and complex on the palate, its rich, layered flavors and roundness are sustained by a vibrant, vivid freshness and sweet, well balanced, perfectly integrated tannins even at this early stage. A very consistent, very long finish evokes the lingering aromas of the bouquet.

Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. The newest icon wine to hit Bolgheri's super Tuscan scene, Orma is a succulent blend of Cabernet Franc (40%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and Merlot (40%) with plush roundness and softness throughout. Aromas include red cherry, spice, vanilla and blackberries. There are delicate mineral tones laced within and the wine delivers freshness and power.

Wine SpectatorDark in color, with intense aromas of blackberry and black licorice, with hints of oak and an earthy undertone. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins, a long finish and a round, caressing texture. The debut wine for Sette Ponti from Bolgheri. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Not imported into the U.S. Best after 2009. 1,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Orma is a blend of 40% Cabernet Franc, 40% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak. This is a big, full-bodied offering loaded with black pepper, sweet plums, blueberries, spices, earthiness, and licorice. The wine reveals notable richness and concentration but its tannins come across as aggressive and lacking polish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015.
