A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. Good full ruby-red. Ripe dark plum, coffee, earth and spice aromas are lifted by a pretty floral note. Fat, supple and full, with impressive mid-palate breadth; turns a bit muscular in the middle, with black pepper and spice notes adding complexity to the coffee and black fruit flavors. Finishes with good length and a note of smoked meat.

"The 2009 Orma is gorgeous. Espresso, mocha, sweet red cherries, grilled herbs and plums wrap around the palate in this sensual wine from the Tuscan coast. The 2009 doesn’t quite have the exuberance or sexiness of 2007 or 2008, but it comes very close. Firm tannins frame a vibrant, energetic finish layered with graphite, smoke and mocha. This is a very beautiful wine from Antonio Moretti and long-time consulting oenologist Carlo Ferrini."

"Wow. Beautiful nose of crushed berries and coffee with hints of spices. Full body, with intense red chili and dark fruits that follow through to a long, long finish. Very beautiful."
