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.

Oreno, wich takes its name from the river that crosses the estate and the hamiet where the farmhouse is found, is the estate’s flagship wine. Fruit of the blend of Merlot structure and Cabernet Sauvignon class, brought together with the elegance of Petit Verdot, it expresses best the potential of the territory and the Moretti Cuseri family’s idea of wine.

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.

Mahâris, which takes its name from the watch towers that the Arabs used to search the sea coast, is the wine that symbolizes the meeting of diverse styles and cultures. It brings together Nero d’Avola, the native Sicilian grape par excellence, with the other great international varieties characteristic to the Mediterranean.

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.
