Deep inky purple in its youth, Passi di Orma is accessible with soft, velvety tannin and heaps of ripe plum and blackberry, but it is also structured and serious. Layers of decadent fruit are underscored by coffee, vanilla bean, and macchia mediterranea. A harmonious finish reaffirms the wine's poise and power. This is a second wine that does not settle for second place. Food Pairings: Passi di Orma's full body and rich, juicy fruit steer the list of suggested pairings toward the heavier end of the spectrum with meat dishes always an excellent choice. Dishes that play on the wine's own character should be highly rewarding, for example a lamb shank seasoned with rosemary and sea salt will tease out the herbal dryness of Tuscany while a seared duck breast with blueberry compote will echo the wine's juicy fruit. Hardy vegetarian fare such as smoky eggplant caponata will also match well with Passi di Orma.

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.
