The practically unanimous reviews from the critics rather speak for themselves when it comes to the stunning Ornellaia 2017. Tenuta dell’Ornellaia transcended what was a hot and tricky Tuscan vintage for many others, especially with the late rain. The wine is spectacularly lively, fresh, intense and silky; offering blackberries, crème de cassis, blueberries, black olive, mocha, toasted hazelnuts, chocolate, roasted herbs, cedar, tobacco, leather and elegant spices. This highly revered vintage will make Ornellaia 2017 a considerable collectors’ item. But we have very few bottles, so if you want to secure one, you’ll need to be quick.

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.
