Notes from the Winemaker:
Intense ruby red with hints of violet. The bouquet is rich of ripe red fruit such as blackberry and blueberry and surrounded by notes of coffee and liquorice. The wine is soft in the mouth, it's balaned and clean, with a perfect tannic structure.
Passi di Orma is the newest of our wines, a Bolgheri doc whose first vintage is 2015. A mix of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes gives this wine a distinctly elegant character. The grapes are grown in mineral rich pebbly terrain with a base of clay. They are harvested and selected by hand. After a fermentation of 10 days, there is a further maceration of eight days with the skins. Ageing is in seasoned French oak barriques for at least 6 months, after which the wine is bottled. Passi di Orma is a perfect reflection of the lands where it is produced. Their high mineral content and sheer beauty blend to give a strength and grace to this international wine which has found its perfect expression.
40% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc
Ratings & Reviews
95 Points - James Suckling:
"Very pretty aromas of currant, tobacco, and mint. Subtle. Full body, silky tannins and lots of fruit and richness. Beautiful length to this. Better in 2020." - (March 11, 2017)
