Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Precise and delineated, the ’14 Ornellaia wafts from the glass with a symphony of crystalline notes: brambly berries, juicy cherries, licorice, warm earth, sweet herbs, smoke and crushed minerals, to name but a few. This wine embraces its opposites, marrying chewy tannins with a subtle sweet inner perfume, and complementing its rich dry extract with vivid acidity. Immensely expressive yet perfectly nuanced, this is a detailed, sophisticated bottling that has the structure to age for years--and given its demanding vintage, the ’14 Ornellaia is a triumph! In 2014, Ornellaia is a blend of 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 20% Petit Verdot, and 14% Cabernet Franc; the product of a challenging yet ultimately rewarding year, ’14 Ornellaia gained the name “Essence” for the transparent transmission of its terroir. Tenuta dell'Ornellaia vinfies each component grape and vineyard parcel separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel and ages the wines in barriques (70% new) for 12 months; then the components are blended and aged in barriques for six months before bottling and aging for another year.
