2013 Ornellaia, Tenuta dell'Ornellaia, Bolgheri, Tuscany

“...An integrated and seamless blend...2013 was not as hot as 2011 and 2012 overall, and this edition of Ornellaia is beautifully tonic and shapely as a result. The bouquet is very developed in terms of aromas. . .those perfumes are just gorgeous. The mouthfeel is similarly intense with tannins that are still young, but are already silky and linear in nature. This vintage promises a long aging future.”

TASTING NOTES

Formed and tight. I love the fresh ginger underneath it all. This has a cool profile to the wine. So approachable yet has wonderful length.

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

Here's one of the original Super Tuscan producers, the group of wines known for using Bordeaux varieties in Sangiovese country to create magnificent wines. Tenuta dell’Ornellaia was founded by Marchese Lodovico Antinori in 1981. He’s the cousin of Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, founder of Sassicaia, and brother of Piero Antonori who started Solaia at Tenuta Tignanello. So Super Tuscans, and no doubt competitiveness, run in the family.
