Tenuta dell'Ornellaia 2015
"The 2015 Ornellaia is a dream wine with magnificent balance...will go down among the great vintages produced at this reference-point estate." Antonio Galloni
|Grape Blend||Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon|
Tenuta dell'Ornellaia's 2015 vintage is stunning. A great Super Tuscan made for the long-haul. The 2015 Ornellaia was purchased in its original wooden cases.
Ornellaia is one of the world's finest red wines. The estate 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. The estate is at the top of Super Tuscan ladder, consistently producing excellent wine in every Tuscan vintage.
"The 2015 Ornellaia is a dream wine with magnificent balance. All the elements are in the right place. In most vintages, Ornellaia needs time to fully come together, but the 2015 is just impeccable, even in the early going. The warm vintage notwithstanding, winemaker Axel Heinz crafted and Ornellaia is more about finesse and power. The potent, bruising tannins Ornellaia can show as a young wine are nowhere to be found. Bright raspberry jam, mint, white flowers and pomegranate are some of the many notes that punctuate the finish in a memorable Ornellaia that will go down among the great vintages produced at this reference-point estate."
