To produce Toscana IGT Orma the must is fermented for 15-18 days, before a 10-day maceration period. After this, the Toscana IGT Orma is first aged in French oak barriques for 6 months and then left to mature in-bottle for a year before release.
The Toscana IGT Orma is a blend of 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Cabernet Franc. It is grown in clay and pebble-rich soils of Bolgheri.
The 2016 vintage started with an early spring, which meant an earlier budburst and fruit set than usual. This was followed by a sunny summer period, which allowed the grapes to mature perfectly, leading to a very complex nose and round balance to the wine.
This is an elegant, sumptuous wine eloquently expressing the finest qualities and full potential of its terroir, the perfect imprint of Antonio Moretti Cuseri upon a world-class production area. A wine of exuberant character, yet exhibiting undeniable finesse, Orma is a classic example of the high-quality wine produced in Bolgheri.
