2013 Tenuta Orma Toscana (Pre-Arrival)
Aromas of blackberry, burnt orange, licorice and spice follow through to a full body, with super integrated and fine tannins plus a fabulous depth of fruit and center palate. This is a great wine. Drink in 2017.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the 2013 Orma is a delicious wine. It shows a deep, rich color and an opulent style that reflects the generous and sun-drenched growing conditions of this classic vintage. This is a full-bodied Tuscan red that maintains a refreshing sense of elegance and finesse all the while. Black fruit, dried blackberry and spice come together in seamless unity. This beautiful Tuscan red should evolve nicely over the next ten years. (ML)
Shows fine depth and concentrated fruit, evoking flavors of cherry, blackberry, spice and earth. Fleshy, structured and fresh, leaving a vibrant, resonating aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2019 through 2032. (BS)
Dark red cherry, plum, mocha, espresso, licorice and smoke are pushed front and center in the 2013 Orma. A super-expressive, Merlot-based Maremma, the Orma is showing beautifully today. With time in the glass, the wine gains creaminess and amplitude. This is a terrific example of the style of wine the Tuscan coast does so well. (AG)
