Region: Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy
Varietal: 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc & 7% Petit Verdot
Tasting Notes: 2015 is certainly one of the great Ornellaia vintages. The usual intense color indicates a wine of great texture and intensity, followed by a fruity scent that is ripe and fresh at the same time, emphasized by classic balsamic and spicy hints. On the palate, it is rich, dense, and full-bodied, with an exceptional tannic texture, dense and velvety, of great refinement, that extends throughout the mouth. The long finish concludes with a feeling of firmness and finely spiced hints.
