Tenuta Setta Ponti Podere Orma 2018 'Orma' Toscana Rosso, Tuscany
Orma is deep ruby with garnet reflections. On the nose, the wine demonstrates presence and intensity of aroma. Notes of red and black fruit are supported by sweet spice, cocoa, dry earth, mediterranean herbs and tobacco. On the Palate, Orma is elegant and dense. Orma's sturdy, yet ripe tannin structure lends the wine a velvety texture. Bright acidity reflects the wine's Italian terroir and keeps the wine balanced through a long finish. Expect excellent ageing potential from Orma.
Blend: 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc
Orma is a powerful red wine that matches wonderfully with full-flavored dishes, particularly those based around game and roasts. However the wine's delicate layers of flavor coupled with purity of fruit make it an ideal companion to ripe cheeses, or simply as a Vino da Meditazione as well.
