27 Marzo 2012 Vinitaly “The richness of diversity” by Daniele Cernilli
Color A red wine with a hint of ruby, confirming a warm year in which the color evolves rapidly.
Perfume A very complex bouquet with a wide spectrum of aromas, especially tertiary ones due to maturing in wooden casks. You can detect the smoked notes typical of the evolution of Sangiovese grapes, mentholated balsamic tones and minerals typical of Merlot and Cabernet.
Taste maintains a balance between tannins and acidity, a fine union between vine varieties from the point of view of well-made organoleptic wine, with its elegant and wide structure, vigorous and firm. To sum it up, a fine “Orma”. It is ready to drink but will age well.
