Winemaker Notes

The Ornellaia 2017 Masterfully Interprets What Was A Particularly Warm And Sunny Year. The Intense And Dark Color Heralds A Wine Of Beautiful Concentration; The Nose, Rich And Complex, Releases Scents Of Ripe Red Fruits, Accompanied By Notes Of Sweet Tobacco And Vanilla. The Taste Reveals An Ornellaia Of Great Balance, A Combination Of Firmness And Pleasant Freshness.

Blend: 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot, 9% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling – 97pts

A Big, Rich Wine For The Vintage, Yet Poised And Lively With Firm, Chewy Tannins That Give Form And Intensity To The Wine. It Shows Loads Of Blackberry, Blackcurrant And Walnut Flavors. Ripe Yet Polished Tannins. Give This Three Or Four Years To Come Together.

Jeb Dunnuck – 96pts

From A Hot Vintage In Bolgheri, The 2017 Ornellaia Is A Blend Of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, And The Rest Close To An Even Split Of Petit Verdot And Cabernet Franc That Spent 18 Months In French Oak. It Doesn’t Match The 2016, But It’s A Beautiful Wine Offering Complex Notes Of Red And Black Fruits, Chocolate, Roasted Herbs, Licorice, And Dried Earth. This Carries To A Full-Bodied Ornellaia With A Rich, Concentrated Mid-Palate, Ripe, Mouthcoating Tannins, And A Great Finish. It Shows The Dry, Hot Vintage Yet Stays Lively And Holds Onto A Sense Of Elegance. I Followed This Bottle For Multiple Days And It Only Improved With Air. This Is A Beautiful, Elegant Ornellaia That Will Evolve For 30-40 Years Or More.

Decanter – 96pts

In 2017 The Production Of Ornellaia (A Blend Of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot And 9% Cabernet Franc) Was Reduced By 15% Due To The Heat. Known As One Of The Most Powerful And Long-Lived Wines From Bolgheri, It Doesn’t Deceive Its Style. The Estate Was One Of The Few Able To Wait Out The Rain Of Mid-September To Harvest The Late-Ripening Varieties Such As Cabernet Sauvignon. Vinous First Due To An Extremely Youthful Cassis Fruit Character, It’s Crunchy And Extracted On The Palate With A Cedar Wood Flavour, Crisp Acidity And Plenty Of Tannins. It Flows To A Ripe Finish, Warming Yet Balanced. It’s Not Properly Ready To Drink Yet But It Will Develop Complexity With Ageing.
