Description

The desire to nurture the estate’s exceptional qualities has shaped Ornellaia’s philosophy since the beginning. Ornellaia is a cuvée of 51%Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc & 2% Petit Verdot in a faithful expression of this unique terroir, a sign of harmony with nature. 2018 turned out to be an excellent vintage, initially wet providing good reserves in the soils, a warm summer followed and at times very hot, but matched with cool nights, essential for fresh fruit flavours and precise acidity levels. All making for a top-notch expression, evident by scores of 96 Decanter, 97-98 James Suckling and 97 Antonio Galloni. Consider every bottle you purchase an investment, either for your taste buds or future sales.

Smells

a lively and intense aromatic expression, a distinctive mark of the vintage. Red fruits, citrus notes, hints of liquorice and Mediterranean scrub combine to form its profile.

Tastes

With the first taste it is enveloping and all its components well-balanced: the tannins, both dense and silky in texture, fill the palate with elegance and precision. The finish is lifted by a distinct tangy vein that enhances the sensation of freshness and persistence.” Hide in a temperature-controlled cellar for 10years+
