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



93 Points - James Suckling:
"A layered and powerful young red from Bolgheri with currant, chocolate and cedar undertones. Full body, layered and polished with beautiful fruit and intensity. A solid and structured wine highlighting the beauty of the vintage on the coast of Tuscany Second wine of Orma. Drink in 2020." (Apr 2018)

91 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2016 Passi di Orma is a gorgeous entry-level wine. Bright and perfumed, with lovely depth, this medium-bodied red delivers the goods. Sweet red cherry, mocha and rose petal are some of the many notes that are laced into the silky finish. This is a wonderfully precise wine from Orma." - Antonio Galloni (Apr 2018(

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Compared to the preceding vintage, the 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Passi di Orma delivers its primary fruit characteristics in a less obvious manner. There is dark plum and blackberry for sure but the spice, toast and tobacco tones take equal billing. This wine also shows a more robust construction with etched layers of mineral and campfire ash at the back. This vintage shows superior focus and definition." - Monica Larner (Oct 2017)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, this opens with aromas of black-skinned berry, green peppercorn and bay leaf. The firm palate delivers ripe black currant, vanilla and a touch of cedar alongside lithe tannins." - Kerin O’Keefe (4/1/2018)
