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.
Blend: 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Cabernet Franc
"There is something so subtle and rich here, with chocolate, red chilies and ripe plums on the nose. Full body with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. This is so delicious now but better in 2017. Best ever from here. A blend of 50 per cent merlot, 30 per cent cabernet sauvignon and 20 per cent cabernet franc. From Bolgheri, just next door to Ornellaia."
"Antonio Moretti's Orma seems to keep getting better with each passing vintage, and the 2010 is no exception to that recent trend. Beautifully delineated and alive in the glass, the 2010 impresses for its fabulous overall balance and class. Mocha, graphite, smoke, plums and grilled herbs emerge as the wine opens up in the glass. The tannins are fine, silky and exceptionally polished in this impeccable, deceptively medium-bodied wine. Orma is a Cabernet Franc/Merlot/ Cabernet Sauvignon blend."

"The welcoming blackberry and dark mocha aromas are seductive and compelling. The 2010 Orma is a 50-30-20 blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc that shows distinct firmness in the palate. That structure beautifully bears boysenberry, blackberry and cassis flavors with accents of chocolate and molasses. The finish is toasty, warm and very rich.

The Wine Advocate
"This bold blend of 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc leads with aromas of ripe plums, graphite and a hint of coffee and balsamic herbs. The soft, concentrated palate delivers ripe black berries, chocolate and mocha. A licorice finish arrives alongside velvety tannins and the warmth of evident alcohol. It’s delicious but fast approaching its ideal drinking window."
