“Ornellaia” is a prestigious oenological masterpiece, the symbol par excellence of made in Italy wine. It comes from Bolgheri, a wonderful corner of Tuscany that has bewitched artists and personalities of all times and that has made itself famous for being a land where the Bordeaux blend offers products of extraordinary finesse and personality. All this, in fact, is Ornellaia, the most representative wine of Tenute dell’Ornellaia. It wants to be the perfect synthesis between elegance, which has always defined the cellar and its products, and the style of the vintage. In short, it is an eloquent wine capable of bringing Italian charm and ability everywhere. The imperative of the winery is quality, which translates into extremely careful attention to detail. Only in this way can Supertuscans be born that stand out, in Italy and in the world, for precision and class.

2014 will go down in history as one of Ornellaia's most particular vintages: one of the longest and most late harvests, with the first Merlots harvested from 6 September, but a large part of the historic vineyards - including some Merlots - harvested in October. The conclusion of the harvest on 22 October was the latest ever.

The late ripening of the grapes allowed the fruit to express its liveliness and freshness to the maximum; the high quality of the tannins on the palate is striking: silky, refined, not edgy. The 2014 vintage represents the heart of the estate, Ornellaia's "Essence": its style, the exceptional quality of the terroir and the skill of those who work in the vineyards and in the cellar.
