2012 Tenuta Orma Toscana

SKU #1258769 96 points James Suckling

 Lots of blackcurrants and blackberry aromas and flavors with hints of bark and mushrooms. Full-bodied, chewy and rich. A powerful red with plenty of structure and depth. This Bordeaux blend from Bolgheri is a challenger to Sassicaia and Ornellaia.  (8/2015)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Showing exceptional density and thickness, the 2012 Orma is a monumental red wine from Tuscany. The blend is 50% Merlot with Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc in supporting roles. Compared to the 2011 vintage, this edition of Orma shows tighter tannins and a longer aging potential. In fact, the wine presents itself as very young and tight at this moment. It is at the beginning of its evolution. If you love juicy, thick reds from Tuscany with dark fruit nuances, spice and chocolate, this wine is for you. (ML)  (9/2015)

92 points Vinous

 The 2012 Orma is plump, juicy and quite expressive today. Blackberry jam, mocha, sweet spices and licorice are all woven together in a wine that typifies the textural resonance and plushness that make the wines of Maremma so appealing. Open and radiant, the 2012 will drink well upon release. Hints of sweet tobacco, licorice and herbs add the final shades of nuance. (AG)  (10/2015)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Rich black cherry, plum, earth and tobacco flavors are wrapped in dense tannins in this red, which shows ample sweetness midpalate, with a fresh, crisp, long finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2017 through 2024. (BS)  (10/2015)

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
