Hailing from one of Tuscany’s greatest vintages, this is a truly spectacular wine and one that feels very Italian, despite being a Bordeaux-style blend. Pulsing with blackberry, black plum, cassis, freshly laid tarmac, smoky roasted herbs, liquorice, French oak and mint; it’s a real collectors’ item and one that has just entered its drinking window. So, look alive to avoid missing out on what Wine Advocate has called a “towering masterpiece”.
Ornellaia is one of Tuscany’s most iconic wines and, in the words of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, it’s “one of Italy’s blue-chip properties”. Founded in 1981 by Lodovico Antinori, brother of Piero who created Tignanello, control passed to Robert Mondavi and then on to Frescobaldi, but despite this tumultuous history, its popularity has never wavered. Located in Bolgheri in Maremma, Ornellaia is a Bordeaux-inspired blend and one of the ultimate Super Tuscans. What makes it so exciting is that the blend can vary quite theatrically, making it a many-faceted wine to collect.
