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 EnthusiastThis vintage of Orma (a hearty blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) shows loads of ripe fruit intensity backed by spice, toasted nut, chocolate, tobacco and leather. It's a chewy, rich wine that would taste perfect with steak or roast pork.

Wine SpectatorTobacco, chocolate, currant and licorice aromas follow through to a full body, with very refined tannins and a long, caressing finish. Lovely and polished. Delicate in many ways. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2012. 1,585 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Orma is a dark, hulking beauty endowed with masses of dark fruit, earthiness, licorice, and tar. In this vintage the wine is round and opulent, with just enough density to balance the French oak tannins. The wine offers outstanding depth and a long, intense finish. This super-ripe, intense red is a terrific effort from proprietor Antonio Moretti. Orma is 40% Cabernet Franc, 40% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine spent 14 months in French oak barrels (60% new) prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.
