Tenuta Sette Ponti, Orma 2013
Orma is deep ruby with garnet reflections. On the nose, the wine demonstrates presence andintensity of aroma. Notes of red and black fruit are supported by sweet spice, cocoa, dry earth, mediterranean herbs and tobacco. On the Palate, Orma is elegant and dense. Orma's sturdy, yetripe tannin structure lends the wine a velvety texture. Bright acidity reflects the wine's Italian terroir and keeps the wine balanced through a long finish. Expect excellent ageing potential from Orma.
James Suckling - "Aromas of blackberry, burnt orange, licorice and spice follow through to a full body, with super integrated and fine tannins plus a fabulous depth of fruit and center palate. This is a great wine. Drink in 2017."
The Wine Advocate - "A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the 2013 Orma is a delicious wine. It shows a deep, rich color and an opulent style that reflects the generous and sun-drenched growing conditions of this classic vintage. This is a full-bodied Tuscan red that maintains a refreshing sense of elegance and finesse all the while. Black fruit, dried blackberry and spice come together in seamless unity. This beautiful Tuscan red should evolve nicely over the next ten years. "
Wine Spectator - "Shows fine depth and concentrated fruit, evoking flavors of cherry, blackberry, spice and earth. Fleshy, structured and fresh, leaving a vibrant, resonating aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2019 through 2032."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Dark red cherry, plum, mocha, espresso, licorice and smoke are pushed front and center in the 2013 Orma. A super-expressive, Merlot-based Maremma, the Orma is showing beautifully today. With time in the glass, the wine gains creaminess and amplitude. This is a terrific example of the style of wine the Tuscan coast does so well."
