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, Ornellaia's namesake Cabernet-Merlot blend has been an auction house staple, and to this day a majority of the wine is snapped up by collectors before it hits American shores. Demand is especially intense for the 2016 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 2016 750ml - $195 each
98 Points Wine Advocate "The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is a wine of extreme complexity and precision. It offers monumental depth with profound layers of black fruit, coffee, licorice and baking chocolate. I tasted this 2016 vintage beside the less-impactful 2015 vintage (which was reviewed last year). These two editions are very different when compared side to side, and this 2016 release is clearly superior in terms of the quality, clarity and intensity of its offerings. This Ornellaia delivers glossy shine and a polished texture that segues to important richness, concentration and textural fiber. It wraps thickly over the palate, imparting waves of sweet dark fruit and dark spice that linger for many long minutes. This beautiful wine is hitting the market now, but collectors will want to put it straight into their cellars for safekeeping. (ML)" (04/2019)
