Estate Notes

Tenuta dell’Ornellaia is situated in Tuscany's breathtaking Bolgheri district, and the hamlet of Bolgheri affords stunning views reaching out to Corsica on a good day, providing the inspiration and physical climate that help create this legendary wine.

Ornellaia's mild maritime climate, together with very strict controls on quantity, minute attention to detail in vineyard management and rigorous selection, make Ornellaia one of the world's most unique and finest wines. The estate is at the top of Super Tuscan ladder, consistently producing excellent wine in every Tuscan vintage.

Reviews

"A wine that emphasizes finesse rather than power. Plenty of dried herb and berry character, with a hint of mint. Medium- to full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Greatest Ornellaia in years." Wine Spectator

"...unquestionably another stunning wine in what has been a strong succession of top wines since 1988. The color is a saturated, thick-looking, ruby/purple. The nose offers up aromas of roasted coffee, jammy black cherry liqueur, and cassis intermixed with spice. On the palate, the wine is rich and full-bodied, with well-integrated wood, tannin, and acidity. Pure, youthful, and accessible." eRobertParker.com

"There is a warm, almost exotic quality to the luxurious, rich fruit. Sweet tobacco and licorice add further layers of nuance and flavour." eRobertParker.com
