2018 Ornellaia Bolgheri DOC Superiore Rosso,
Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia:
Ornellaia 2018 BOLGHERI DOC SUPERIORE ROSSO Der Wunsch, die außergewöhnliche Qualität des Weinguts zu fördern, prägt seit Beginn die Ornellaia-Philosophie. Ornellaia ist eine Cuvée aus Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc sowie Petit Verdot und der authentische Ausdruck eines einzigartigen Terroirs, das im Einklang mit der Natur entwickelt wurde.

The 2018 Ornellaia is an introvert at this stage. Medium in body, with terrific persistence and impeccable balance, the 2018 is not in any mood to show all its cards today. Hints of red berry fruit, mocha, spice, licorice and dried flowers emerge with a bit of coaxing. I won’t be surprised to see it put on weight with more time in bottle. There is certainly plenty to look forward to. Readers should expect a silky, aromatic Ornellaia in line with vintages such as 2004 that are more about finesse than raw power.
This is the first time in which Merlot drives the blend in Ornellaia.

James Suckling:
So aromatic and complex with blackcurrants, blueberries, fresh violets and lavender on the nose. Some graphite and iodine, too. Medium to full body with firm, chewy tannins that are polished and refined, yet the palate is so long and refined. This is an Ornellaia with strength in elegance. Try after 2025.
