Intense ruby red with hints of violet. The bouquet is rich of ripe red fruit such as blackberry and blueberry and surrounded by notes of coffee and liquorice.
In mouth it is soft and balanced, with a perfect tannic structure.
Passi di Orma 2018
Passi di Orma is the newest of our wines, a Bolgheri doc whose first vintage is 2015. A mix of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes gives this wine a distinctly elegant character. The grapes are grown in mineral rich pebbly terrain with a base of clay. They are harvested and selected by hand. After a fermentation of 10 days, there is a further maceration of eight days with the skins. Ageing is in seasoned French oak barriques for at least 6 months, after which the wine is bottled. Passi di Orma is a perfect reflection of the lands where it is produced. Their high mineral content and sheer beauty blend to give a strength and grace to this international wine which has found its perfect expression.
“Yum. A rich, dense red with currant, chocolate and walnut aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and tannic, yet polished. Direct finish.”

Tuscan Sangiovese wine arises with a long, gentle maceration of about a month aimed at exalting all the noble components of the grapes, picked at the perfect phenolic maturity in order to exult the particular qualities of this Tuscan Sangiovese wine: this is why Vigna dell’Impero is a unique wine.

The soul of the silent volcano, unexpected and incandescent, giving life to perpetual movement, and the name of our wine. A force of nature that is irrepressible and seductive, and an expression of a unique terroir.

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.
