Orma Bolgheri 2016 (Super Tuscan): “Super Tuscan” is a term used to describe red wines from Tuscany that may include the use of non-indigenous grapes, particularly Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. ... Winemakers began mixing 'unsanctioned' wine varieties (like Merlot) into their blends to make high quality wines.
Purchased in 2004 by Tenuta Sette Ponti owner, Dr. Antonio Moretti, Orma is a 5.5 hectare estate that is nestled in Bolgheri, coastal Tuscany’s outstanding wine region, between two illustrious neighbours, Sassacaia and Ornellaia. Bolgheri has long boasted an impressive reputation worldwide, earning its prestige as one of the most impressive and creative production areas in the world of wine, noted for its experimentation with innovative blends of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Tasting Notes: The 2016 vintage is a purplish red with hints of violet. It entices with a rich bouquet of intense berry fruit and spice, with hints of tobacco. It is soft and velvety in the mouth with spice and fully ripe, sweet fruit notes, owing to the early spring and sunny summer. This vintage’s complex nose and exceptional balance can be clearly observed in this special vintage. Alc 15% Grapes: 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc
