Orma Passi di Orma 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
Compared to the preceding vintage, the 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Passi di Orma delivers its primary fruit characteristics in a less obvious manner. There is dark plum and blackberry for sure but the spice, toast and tobacco tones take equal billing. This wine also shows a more robust construction with etched layers of mineral and campfire ash at the back. This vintage shows superior focus and definition. The blend is 40% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc.
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, this opens with aromas of black-skinned berry, green peppercorn and bay leaf. The firm palate delivers ripe black currant, vanilla and a touch of cedar alongside lithe tannins.
