On the Tuscan Coast overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, Tenuta dell'Ornellaia comprises 99 ha of vines, 58 ha of which are in the Bellaria vineyard closer to the sea. The vineyards are planted at altitudes ranging from 50 to 120 meters above sea level, on slopes ranging from 5 to 20°.

 

The legendary Ornellaia DOC Bolgheri competes with Sassicaia as Italy’s most celebrated ‘Super Tuscan’ wine. In reality, Ornellaia is quite distinct from its Bolgheri rival.  With its significant Merlot component and more new oak, Ornellaia is more opulent and sensual than Sassicaia. 

 

Rated 96 points by both Jane Anson and Aldo Fiordelli, the 2018 vintage contains 51% Merlot, the highest proportion of Merlot in any vintage of Ornellaia to date. Aldo Fiordelli of Decanter thinks it is a “really great expression of Bolgheri, more focused on elegance than power” while Galloni “won’t be surprised to see it put on weight with more time in bottle”.
