Orma Toscana 2007
Bordeaux Red Blends
from Tuscany, Italy
ratings pedigree (past vintages):
This deep-colored gem has evolved in French barriques for 12 months, then aged in
bottle for a further year. Its lush bouquet of berries and spice, with notes of licorice
and tobacco, is confirmed on a full, velvety palate whose caressing texture and
sweet, silky tannins are pure, bottled poetry.
40% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot
alcohol by volume:
"What a nose of crushed blueberry and blackberry on this, with aromas of licorice. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Still very young. A Bordeaux blend from Bolgheri. Best after 2013. "
"The 2007 Orma is warm and open on the nose, as hints of grilled herbs, espresso, blackberry jam, mocha and spices emerge from the glass. All of those notes resonate on the palate, where the rich, expansive fruit comes to life in a gorgeous display of Maremma. Round and caressing through to the finish, the 2007 Orma is an utterly convincing, beautifully articulated wine. Naturally at this stage it is rather bold and the oak remains present, but time will tame some of the wine’s more exuberant qualities. This is by far the finest vintage of Orma I have ever tasted. Orma is 40% Cabernet Franc, 40% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
The Wine Advocate
"Dark ruby. Aromas of blackcurrant, mocha and violet. Sweet, rich and suave, with a ripe blackberry flavor complemented by nuances of brown spices, chocolate and minerals. Finishes soft and long, with chocolatey sweet fruit and ripe, silky tannins. This is an excellent example of a modern, internationally styled wine with an opulent mouthfeel."
