Ornellaia Bolgheri DOC 2014

Blended Red from Italy - Tuscany
Review Date : 12-Feb-2017
Dark, deep, ruby-red with good depth, and slight garnet on rim. The nose is very elegant, but with a firm, fresh core of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit. Stylish and ripe, with fragrance and lifted oak elements. Very finely bound and tight, somewhat shy on plate, but with building intensity of blackberry, cassis liqueur and aromatic oak lift. The tannins are refined and the acidity in excellent fresh balance. This has sufficient grip and concentration to make it serious. The wine flows smoothly and carries to a lusciously long finish of finesse. A wonderful effort in a challenging vintage. 9-10+ years aging ahead. A blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% each Merlot and Petit Verdot, and 7% Cabernet Franc, the wine aged 18 months in predominantly new oak. 18.5-/20 Feb 2017 RRP $TBA
