Situated in the picturesque hills of Bolgheri not far from Sassicaia, Ornellaia is one of the benchmark Super Tuscan estates. Since its debut in 1985, the estate's namesake Cabernet-Merlot blend has been an auction house staple, and to this day most of the wine is snapped up by collectors before it hits American shores. Demand is especially intense for the 2015 release given the quality of the vintage, and Estate Wine Brokers is proud to offer the wine at the lowest retail price in the country:
Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore 2015 750ml - $195 each
98 Points Vinous "The 2015 Ornellaia is a dream wine with magnificent balance. All the elements are in the right place. In most vintages, Ornellaia needs time to fully come together, but the 2015 is just impeccable, even in the early going. The warm vintage notwithstanding, winemaker Axel Heinz crafted an Ornellaia that is more about finesse than power. The potent, bruising tanninsOrnellaia can show as a young wine are nowhere to be found. Bright raspberry jam, mint, white flowers and pomegranate are some of the many notes that punctuate the finish in a memorableOrnellaia that will go down among the great vintages produced at this reference-point estate.
