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.

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.

A great dessert wine, passito di Toscana. Made from Malvasia and Trebbiano grapes allowed to dry out in a well ventilated room until Valentine’s Day, the date chosen by Antonio Moretti Cuseri. Around a week before the pressing of the grapes become coloured , ranging from intense brown, to gold and pink. The remaining passito from the year before, left at the bottom of the barrels, gives a persistent aroma of raisins, fruit cake and spicy oak.
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.
