Back by Client Demand: $27 Ornellaia Super Tuscan, Vintage Soldera, and Grower Champagne!
July 26, 2017
A Note from Sergio

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia is a press darling and an international superstar. Owned by the Frescobaldi family and run by the talented Axel Heinz, Ornellaia makes a flagship wine that is one of the most well-known Super Tuscans, while its cult collector Merlot, Masseto, is the kind of wine that has fanatics counting the days until a new vintage comes on the market. Ornellaia's two collector wines are internationally recognized and beloved--both because they have all the characteristics of worldwide wines (things like density, richness, and soft tannins) and because they essentially perform like a blue chip stock in the cellar.

But great as Ornellaia's first-tier wines are, they're not the only wines the estate makes, which means that most serious Italian wine enthusiasts might be cheating their palates by only enjoying Ornellaia on those special occasions that call for the estate's flagship or its Masseto. Italians understand that delicious wine is not a luxury--it's a necessity. It makes food taste better. It makes friends out of strangers. It has the power to elevate a simple meal to something sublime. Ornellaia is, first and foremost, a maker of Italian wines, and thus Ornellaia makes its Le Volte, the entry-level red, so that people can make any night of the week even more special.

Today, I'm very happy to say that the latest vintage of Le Volte is in stock and ready to ship. 2015 is a stellar vintage of this delightful wine--it almost dances in your mouth! This terrific Italian red is priced at just under $27 a bottle, and it's definitely a wine to get by the case. Along with this delicious Italian red, I'm proud to present a collector vintage Brunello from Gianfranco Soldera, whom I believe is very probably the finest winemaker in the world. I managed to score some magnums of Soldera's outrageous 1988 Brunello. This wine is going to drink for decades--in fact, it might outlive us all!

Finally, there is one very special, remarkably affordable Grower Champagne from Roger Coulon, because Champagne is always a good idea!

Price: $52.99

Bright cherries and berries, buttered brioche, baking spices, and vanilla cavort in the nose of Roger Coulon’s fine Brut Réserve de l'Hommée; the wine’s precise palate echoes these notes, adding citrus and orchard fruits, along with a penetrating minerality. Perfect, fine perlage transmits texture and a bright skein of acidity propels this elegant Champagne as it builds to a balanced, complex, and mineral-laden finish. This wine, a blend of Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay that derives from the estate’s old-vine vineyards in Vrigny and Pargny, gets its name from the traditional term for the vineyard work a person could do in a single day. Tradition dictates the creation of this wine; it ferments with only natural yeasts and ages for at least five years before disgorgement. more info
