It is in Bolgheri that Antonio Moretti Cuseri has left his new footprint, or Orma in Italian. This is no simple word-play, but rather heralds a wine estate which Moretti Cuseri acquired in Bolgheri, in the province of Livorno, after searching for a wine-growing area of absolute quality.
Bolgheri has long boasted an impressive reputation in the world of great wines, earning its prestige as one of the most impressive and creative production areas in the entire world of wine as a result of a number of forward-thinking producers and of the area’s experimentation with innovative blends of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. An unusual alchemy fuses together climate, soils, culture, and tradition to make Bolgheri an exceptional terroir for the production of powerful yet refined wines of unsurpassed quality.
The estate comprises seven hectares, of which five are in vineyard. It is southwest facing and planted in deep soils with abundant pebble and clay content, and little sand, ideal conditions in a warm climate. The nearby Mediterranean tempers the weather extremes over the inland areas, cooling the summers and moderating the winters.
