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.

It is a blend of Nero d'Avola and Frappato grapes that shows characteristic of both varieties: the pleasant acidity of the first one underpinned by the juicy fruit of the second offer a unique and distinctive fizzy red, to drink cold.
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.
From our Sangiovese vineyards, located in the area called Vigna di Pallino, is produced the Vigna di Pallino Riserva. Unique and elegant, characterized by elegant spicy plot. Very balanced wine, in the mouth is soft with a nice freshness that makes it long and pleasant.

Crognolo is named after a wild bush, Cornus, that grows abundantly on the estate. Made predominantly from Sangiovese, a traditional Tuscan variety, that produces elegant and age worthy wines, Crognolo brings together the class of Sangiovese with the complexity bestowed by aging in oak.
