Being the third wine of Ornellaia, it reflects the philosophy and savoir-faire of the domaine and combine the softness of Merlot, the structure and depth of Cabernet Sauvignon and the vivacity of Sangiovese.
Aged for 10 months partly in oak barrel used for Ornellaia and partly in cement tanks, this Super Tuscan offers the perfect balance between tannic structure and expression of fresh fruit.
“… good depth of dark fruit with accompanying dried herbs and spice. The mouthfeel is dense and quite smooth despite the tannins, with a delightful minty finish. Fine acidity ties everything together…” 92pts – James Button Decanter Magazine 2017. The 2014 also received 90pts from James Suckling.
