The 2011 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia lives up to the legacy of this important wine, thanks to its extreme intensity and its skillfully crafted bouquet. The excellent quality of fruit stands clear, despite the heat of the vintage, with pristine notes of dark cherry, exotic spice and chocolate. This expression of Ornellaia is composed of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. The results are nothing short of exuberant and this vintage will reward both those who decided to drink it early, as well as those who have the patience to wait. The only slight ruffle in this otherwise gorgeous presentation is the 2011 tannin that feels a touch aggressive. For that reason, its probably better to put the wine aside in your cellar., 2014

Tenuta dell’Ornellaia is an Italian wine producer known for producing Super Tuscan wines, in the Bolgheri DOC in Tuscany. The wines are based on Bordeaux grape varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and are among the leaders in the Super Tuscan category along with Solaia, Tignanello and Sassicaia. The estate produces its flagship wine, Ornellaia, as well as secondary wines Le Serre Nuove, Le Volte and the varietally labelled Merlot, Masseto. The vineyards of the estate were planted in 1981 under the direction of Marchese Lodovico Antinori of the famous Antinori family who originally championed Chianti production. In 1985 the first vintage of Ornellaia was produced with the help of renowned Hungarian winemaker Tibor Gal. After some years the winery had built up a great reputation and was regularly acquiring awards and accolades from notable wine critics such as Robert Parker. By the late 90’s, Californian producer Robert Mondavi expressed a great interest in the winery and took a minority share in the estate. By 2002 he had acquired full ownership while initiating a partnership with the Frescobaldi family. In 2005, the Frescobaldi family became full owners of the estate and own it to this day where it is known as Ornellaia e Masseto.
