Ornellaia was founded in 1981, it was taken over by the Frescobaldi family in 2005. One of the driving forces of the Super Tuscan movement, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
With its usual deep ruby-red color, Ornellaia 2018 features a lively and intense aromatic expression, a distinctive mark of the vintage. Red fruits, citrus notes, hints of liquorice and Mediterranean scrub combine to form its profile. With the first taste it is enveloping and all its components well-balanced: the tannins, both dense and silky in texture, fill the palate with elegance and precision. The finish is lifted by a distinct tangy vein that enhances the sensation of freshness and persistence.
