Passi di Orma was first produced in 2015 as a Bolgheri DOC, with its roots in an excellent vintage, and is a perfect reflection of the land where it is produced. The high mineral content and the elegance of the soil are entirely integrated with the power and finesse of the international varieties that find here their best expression. This wine from Bolgheri in Tuscany is a blend of international grape varieties – 40% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Cabernet Franc – grown in soils abundant in clay and pebble, with smatterings of sand.
An intense, deep ruby red with hints of violet and soft, rounded tannins. The bouquet is rich in ripe red fruits, blackberry and blueberry, which mingle with notes of coffee and liquorice. On the palate, it is soft and balanced, with a perfect tannic structure. Best served at 16°C.
