Tenuta Sette Ponti has been a fixture in the Tuscan wine region since the Moretti Cuseri family purchased the estate in the 1950's. Situated on approximately 825 acres, the 125 acres of vineyards are certified organic and sustainable with most dating back to the 1960's, although the most prized vineyard "Vigna deli'Impero" dates back to 1935. Sette Ponti produces a wide range of well-known wines in addition to Orma, including Oreno and Crognolo, and is often considered an equal to its more famous, and expensive, neighbors, including Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Guado Al Tasso. The 2015 vintage in Tuscany was hailed by critics as "epic" and "the most single exciting vintage since 2010" resulting in wines of incredible richness, freshness and energy coupled with bold and characterful fruit. 

 

"The 2015 vintage presents consumers with a tremendous opportunity to acquire fine, cellar worthy wines without spending a fortune." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

 

This wine is a typical Italian expression of a Bordeaux blend with this release being a combination of 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc. GVWM is excited to be able to offer this fabulous Tuscan IGT beauty, in stock and ready to ship, at the lowest price on the West Coast and 13% below market average!

 

98 JS: "Plenty of ripe blackberry and incense. Opens up beautifully in the glass. So perfumed. Full body and seamless tannins that coat your palate with a silky texture. Wonderfully framed with complex fruit. Drink in 2021 but already gorgeous." - James Suckling

 

96 VM: "The 2015 Orma is fabulous. Pliant and resonant in the glass, the 2015 is a total pleasure bomb. Mocha, espresso, raspberry jam, rose petal, mint and cedar all race out of the glass in this stunningly beautiful, gracious wine from Orma. All the elements simply fall into place effortlessly. A closing flourish of aromatic intensity punctuates the finish." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

 

94 WA: "The 2015 Orma is absolutely rich in intensity and thick in extract. The sunny 2015 vintage is all about exuberance and gosh you do get that here. This is a viscerally exciting wine with a large load of dark fruit, blackberry and crème de cassis. Those fruity tones segue to spice, leather, tobacco and barbecue smoke. Roasted espresso bean and dusty chocolate appear on the full-bodied finish. This is a complete, rich and nicely extracted red wine from the Tuscan Coast. The blend is 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc." - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

 

16.5 JR: "50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc. A Bolgheri in anything but name. Impenetrable deep ruby. Seductive, generous nose of cassis and dark cherry with well judged, oak notes. Reminds a little bit of Bordeaux but this is riper, more voluptuous with generous dark fruit and balancing acidity. International styled, and with silky tannins, and completely ready now." - Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
