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.
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.

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.
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.
