Ornellaia 2013 75cl 14% ABV
Ornellaia, Bolgheri, Italy
A true Italian classic and one of the most famous Super Tuscans. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
Ornellaia was brought to life in the early 1980s by Marchese Ludovico Antinori. In 1988, the first vintage (1985) was released. The winery is now owned by the Marchesi de Frescobaldi, who continue to take Ornellaia to new heights, with their own unique identity.
Today, each vintage of Ornellaia is given its own unique name and label, reflecting the respective character of each vintage. Every year they commission a new artist to design the label. The label for the famous 2013 release, L'Eleganza, is designed by contemporary artist and sculptor Yutaka Sone.
Ornellaia 2013, with its dense, vibrant colour, has a nose of splendid aromatic complexity built around a limpid and brilliant fruitiness, underscored by refined spicy and balsamic notes. The mouth develops vibrant and complex fruity nuances framed by a dense, slender structure with tannins that attain a rare harmony between firmness and fleshiness, concluding with a long balanced and fresh finish.
