Sassicaia may be the original Super Tuscan, but Ornellaia is on equal footing when it comes to stature and iconic status. And for our money, it has all the others beat when it comes to class and finesse. 2015 is proving to be an epic year in Tuscany and the 2015 Ornellaia proves it with its sumptuous fruit and effortless grace.

Ornellaia has been a big deal in the wine world for quite a while, and deservedly so. And, yet, 2015 has the estate producing greater wine than ever before. Get in on this. Future you will be happy you did!


2015 Le Volte dell’Ornellaia

92 pts.: “A fine-grained and focused red with berry, coffee and spice aromas and flavors. Medium body and a clean finish. Extremely pretty and delicious to drink now.”- James Suckling


2015 Ornellaia

98 pts.: “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 the power. The potent, bruising tannins Ornellaia 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 memorable Ornellaia that will go down among the great vintages produced at this reference-point estate” – Antonio Galloni

97 pts.: “A big, brooding red, packed with blackberry, plum and earth flavors, all wrapped in spicy oak. Monolithic now, finishing with saline mineral elements, a leafy tobacco edge and dense, mouthcoating tannins. Terrific potential. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2038. 2,300 cases imported.” – Wine Spectator
