Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2008 Orma is striking in this vintage. An exciting array of dark fruit, chocolate, spices and leather emerges from this dense, vibrant wine. A powerful underlying vein of minerality frames the wine all the way through to the fresh, vibrant finish. Freshly cut roses, licorice and spices reappear on the striking finish. Orma is 40% Cabernet Franc, 40% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 14 months in French oak barrels, 60% new. Orma is one of the most improved wines in Tuscany. The 2008 is simply terrific. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.

Wine maker notes
Orma epitomizes the style of wine that has made Bolgheri a household name among enthusiasts of the ’Super-Tuscan’ phenomenon. Bordelaise grape varieties achieve superlative expression in Bolgheri, but they do so a style that is unique to this low-lying, sun-drenched, and breezy zone near the Tyrrhenian Sea. Orma’s blend of 50% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 30% Cabernet Franc blends the ripeness and density that one might associate with Napa’s sunny skies with earthiness and power similar to that for which Bordeaux is the benchmark. A backbone of vibrant acidity and aromas of dusty earth keep Orma’s identity firmly Italian.

Producer
Winery Overview Orma is the acclaimed wine made at a single estate of the same name in Bolgheri, coastal Tuscany’s premier wine village. Originally purchased in the mid-1990’s by Arezzo-born business mogul, Antonio Moretti, Orma is said to be ‘well-born’ due to the estate’s location next to Tenuta dell’Ornellaia and amid the towering cypress trees of the famed Via Bolgherese. With a profile that finds equilibrium between power and finesse, Orma reflects both the unique terroir and the ambitious spirit of its territory. Location of Vineyard The Orma estate is located in the district of Castagneto Carducci within the Bolgheri DOC, and is home to only 7 hectares of well-exposed and carefully tended vineyard. Plantings of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc are brought to full ripeness by the brilliant summer sunshine for which this part of Tuscany is renowned. Gentle and consistent sea breezes keep the vines ventilated and free of rot despite dense plantings of 2,960 vines/acre. More than any other characteristic, however, Orma’s vineyards are defined by their soil. Here, the soil is composed of a high proportion of sand and pebbles with considerably less clay than other coastal areas in Tuscany. This yields a well-drained growing environment in which vines are required to dig deep for buried water reserves. The result is a richly defined wine of power, concentration, and character. Philosophy Antonio Moretti was born in Tuscany and built success across a variety of industries such as luxury goods, fashion, real estate, and finance. And while these endeavors drew Mr. Moretti around the globe, it was the connection to his roots that brought him back to Tuscany. The Orma property was purchased in 1996 by Mr. Moretti with the intention of adding to the cannon of top quality wines that define Bolgheri as the winemaking jewel of Tuscany’s coast. Since the wine’s debut vintage in 2005, and under the expert care of consulting winemaker Carlo Ferrini and in-house enologist, Elisa Renzetti, Orma is well on its way to being recognized the world over as what it truly is: One wine from one estate that is second to none.
