Antonio Moretti's Orma seems to keep getting better with each passing vintage, and the 2010 is no exception to that recent trend. Beautifully delineated and alive in the glass, the 2010 impresses for its fabulous overall balance and class. Mocha, graphite, smoke, plums and grilled herbs emerge as the wine opens up in the glass. The tannins are fine, silky and exceptionally polished in this impeccable, deceptively medium-bodied wine. Orma is a Cabernet Franc/Merlot/ Cabernet Sauvignon blend.
The welcoming blackberry and dark mocha aromas are seductive and compelling. The 2010 Orma is a 50-30-20 blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc that shows distinct firmness in the palate. That structure beautifully bears boysenberry, blackberry and cassis flavors with accents of chocolate and molasses. The finish is toasty, warm and very rich. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. Orma is a special wine project owned by entrepreneur and fashion mogul Antonio Moretti who owns other properties including a wine estate in Sicily. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
