TENUTA DELL’ORNELLAIA
POGGIO ALLE GAZZE

Beautiful and strong Sauvignon blanc. Poggio alle Gazze combines the typical gooseberry with ripe apricot, peach, pear and pineapple. Spicy and very juicy on the palate. It comes along with a great creaminess and a remarkable acidity. The wine is reveals a nice structure and freshness. Soft and long finish. Drink it now through 2016.

Le Serre Nuove 2010

Country: Italy
Wine region: Tuscany
Vintage: 2009
Classification: D.O.C. Bolgheri
Variety: Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet franc, Petit verdot

TENUTA DELL’ORNELLAIA
LE SERRE NUOVE

Deep and garnetred-hued colored. Créme de cassis, cherries and plums are matched with some almond biscuit and eucalyptus. Shows a bunch of macchia aromas. Marvellous prelude on the palate. Soft and balanced acidity with outstanding and supple tannins. The 2009 vintage is really on point and offers beside mulberries and cassis an extra portion of the the finest dark chocolate and Turkish mokka. This wine will certainly age well, but it´s also approachable now through 2025+. „Le Serre Nuove, boma ye!“. Blend of 54% Merlot, 31% Cabernet sauvignon, 10% Petit verdot and 5% Cabernet franc.

Ornellaia 2010

Country: Italy
Wine region: Tuscany
Vintage: 2009
Classification: D.O.C. Bolgheri
Variety: Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet franc, Petit verdot

TENUTA DELL’ORNELLAIA
ORNELLAIA

Although the vintage 2009 wasn´t easy to handle, due to the hot temperatures, this Ornellaia reveals almost an esoteric and deep complexity. Créme de cassis, plums, cherries, cardamom, pimento and eucalyptus are some of its features. Primarily with a very soft texture, then followed by explosive and marvellous Maserati tannins and an extremely refreshing and harmonious acidity. Juicy, velvet-like and unbelievable sexy. This Ornellaia will definitely be earlier ready to drink, but with no doubt age beautiful in the cellars, due to its great perfection and balance. Long finish and influenced totally by Tuscany and Bolgheri. Best from 2015 through 2040.
