Orma, 2009

Orma, located in the district of Castagneto Carducci, is said to be ‘well-born’ due to the estate’s location next to Tenuta dell’Ornellaia and amid the towering cypress trees of the famed Via Bolgherese. This is an area with some of the most amazing terroir in all of Italy. Orma reflects both the unique terroir and the ambitious spirit of its territory.

“Wow. Beautiful nose of crushed berries and coffee with hints of spices. Full body, with intense red chili and dark fruits that follow through to a long, long finish. Very beautiful. Better in 2014.” James Suckling, 95 Points- December 2012

“The 2009 Orma is gorgeous. Espresso, mocha, sweet red cherries, grilled herbs and plums wrap around the palate in this sensual wine from the Tuscan coast. The 2009 doesn’t quite have the exuberance or sexiness of 2007 or 2008, but it comes very close. Firm tannins frame a vibrant, energetic finish layered with graphite, smoke and mocha. This is a very beautiful wine from Antonio Moretti and long-time consulting oenologist Carlo Ferrini. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.” Wine Advocate, Antonio Galloni, 93 Points- June 2012

“Rich, laced with black cherry, tobacco, leather and earth flavors, this red gets solid support from dusty tannins. Holds together pleasantly, ending with tobacco and briar notes. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2015 through 2023. 208 cases made.” Wine Spectator, Bruce Sanderson, 92 Points– 2003

Food pairing: Orma is a powerful red wine that matches wonderfully with full-flavoured dishes, particularly those based around game and roasts. However the wine’s delicate layers of flavour coupled with purity of fruit make it an ideal companion to ripe cheeses, or simply as a Vino da Meditazione as well.

Oreno, 2011

Oreno hails from Castagneto Carducci, the area of Bolgheri which produces its most- acclaimed wines.

“There is a purity of fruit in this young Tuscan red, with flowers, citrus fruit and currants. Full body with firm, silky tannins that are ultra-fine and wonderfully polished. The structure builds to a racy finish. This is a Bordeaux blend that is all in harmony. Give it time: the tannins and fruit will melt together. ” James Suckling, 96 Points – November 2013

“The 2011 Oreno (Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon-Petit Verdot) shows initial ripeness with aromas of prune, dark plum and blackberry preserves. The effect is soft, rich and enduring. Chocolate and dark spice fill in the rear. This wine will appeal to those who appreciate the round and plump side of Italian reds. It is a fruit forward expression with big concentration and extraction that is further defined by the spicy oak tones that appear throughout.” Wine Advocate, Monica Larner, 92 Points- September 2015

“Though rich, this red is also vibrant, balanced and full of generous black cherry and blackberry flavours. Hints of spice and smoke add accents to the long, satisfying finishBest from 2015 through 2025. ” Wine Spectator, Bruce Sanderson, 92 points –October 2013

Food pairing: Full flavoured meats, game and roasts

Crognolo, 2015

Made predominantly from Sangiovese, Crognolo brings together the class of Sangiovese with the complexity bestowed by ageing in oak.

“A firm and chewy young wine with chestnut, chocolate and oyster shell character. A blackberry undertone. Full body, polished and fresh. Drink now or hold in your cellar.” James Suckling, 94 Points-August 2017

“Fresh and enticing, with cherry, raspberry, tobacco and spice flavours. Firms up on the finish, where vegetal accents and tannins linger. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2023.” Wine Spectator, Bruce Sanderson, 90 Points-September 2017

“Sangiovese and Merlot make up the 2015 Crognolo. The wine shows a dark appearance followed by long, flowing aromas of black fruit, spice and leather. This is a robust and nicely layered red blend that would stand up to meat roasts or lamb shanks. The wine is smooth and pleasing in texture. It drinks very nicely straight out of the gate.” Wine Advocate, Monica Larner, 90 Points- October 2017

Food pairing: Delicious with full flavoured meats, game and roasts
