ORNELLAIA is one of the world’s most iconic wineries & producers of Super Tuscan.
This cult wine is a cuvée of hand-picked and double sorted Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot. It is aged for 24 months in used oak barrels and a further 12 months in bottle prior to release. “Ornellaia 2018 features a lively and intense aromatic expression, a distinctive mark of the vintage. Red fruits, citrus notes, hints of licorice, and Mediterranean scrub combine to form its profile. The tannins, both dense and silky in texture, fill the palate with elegance and precision. The finish is lifted by a distinct tangy vein that enhances the sensation of freshness and persistence.” – Olga Fusari, Winemaker, July 2020

If you are opening this up, you have to pair it with an equally indulgent meal like Bistecca alla Fiorentina with roasted potatoes.
