To be released in May 2017, the 2014 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia reverts to a style and personality that we have not seen in a long while. The wine shows a tight, silky and determined approach that reminds us of the Ornellaias made under the estate's previous ownership with the Marchese Lodovico Antinori in the mid-1990s. More than anything else, this has to do with the very unique characteristics of the 2014 growing season. The wine opens to a beautifully saturated and dark appearance. Thanks to the advanced age of the vines and their extensive root systems, fruit quality was well preserved despite the cool summer and late harvest. The wine shows sweet fruit nuances with blackberry and dark currant. Spice, leather and tobacco fill in the rear. The finish reveals just enough of that acidic prickle to assure an easy ten or fifteen year drinking window.

Tasting note


The 2018 Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore, a testament to Tuscany's grandeur, presents itself with a deep ruby-red hue, unveiling a vibrant and intense aromatic profile. This vintage is marked by a symphony of red fruits, zesty citrus, subtle liquorice, and the essence of Mediterranean scrub. Upon tasting, it envelops the palate with a harmonious balance of dense yet silky tannins, exuding elegance and precision. The finish is elevated by a distinctive tangy streak, amplifying the freshness and ensuring a persistent aftertaste. This wine is a true expression of its unique terroir, crafted with care and aged to perfection.
