Nestled in the heart of Bolgheri, one of the world's most captivating wine regions, Tenuta dell’Ornellaia beckons with a mesmerizing approach—an awe-inspiring avenue flanked by majestic cypress trees, tracing the ancient Roman coastal road, Aurelia, leading to the medieval hamlet of Bolgheri. The panoramic vista from the village unfolds dramatically, stretching across the azure sea to the distant horizons, where, on a clear day, the Tuscan Archipelago and Corsica emerge on the horizon.

In this enchanting setting, the mild maritime climate and abundant Mediterranean vegetation intricately shape the character of Tenuta dell’Ornellaia's wines. Guided by the vineyard's unique terroir, every facet of production is meticulously tailored: limited quantities to ensure unparalleled quality, an unwavering commitment to detail, selective hand harvesting, and a nuanced orchestration of microvinification and aging techniques.

Alluring aromas of lead pencil and currants with crushed stone and iodine. Full-bodied with hemmed in tannins that are tight and focused. Very fresh and energetic with wonderful length and intensity for this vintage. Needs four or five years to come together. Better in 2028 and onwards.

Tasted from barrel, the 2020 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia will be presented in the fall but won’t hit the market until spring of the following year. This is a beauty, so generous and opulent with fully seamless transitions. The wine’s traditional blend is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with tiny percentages of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, although this warm vintage makes do with a pinch less of the Cabernet Sauvignon. Fruit is selected across 107 hectares of Ornellaia vines, although the estate recently purchased an additional eight hectares next to Guado al Tasso in Castagneto Carducci, with terraces and vines aged between 15 and 28 years old. This broad and generous expression has a beautiful quality of fruit and oak that speaks to the very best of Italian winemaking.
