Orma is the perfect assemblage of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, grape varieties that have found in these surroundings their perfect habitat.
These gently-sloping hills boast deep soils composed largerly of pebble and clay; with very little sand, cool soils that resist the heat of recent seasons, while the nearby Mediterranean tempers the heat coming from inland, cooling the summers and softening the winters.
The grapes are hand-picked and vinified according to the dictates of tradition: a fermentation of some 15 days, followed by maceration, with frequent punchdowns and pumpovers, followed by a full year spent in French oak barriques.

The Chianti Vigna di Pallino takes its name from the grower who, for many years, lovingly looked after this vineyard, already present on cadastral maps dating to the beginning of the 1800’s. From the heart of the estate, produced largely with Sangiovese and without the use of oak, it is a wine that represents the historic continuity of the estate and the traditions of the region.

Nero d’Avola, an extraordinary native Sicilian grape; fermented and macerated in steel, exuberant and at ease, right for every occasion and easy to drink. In the steps of the southern Italian rural tradition of finishing the wine of the last vintage before beginning to drink that of the next.
