Tasting Notes

Ornellaia 2016, dubbed “The Tension”, is a wine that effortlessly displays enticing opposing forces. Luscious ripe black fruit, deep concentrated sweet spices and mocha notes are framed by elegant and crisp acidity. The result is a wine that shows perfectly all the virtues of Bolgheri’s terroir and one that is simply a must have for Orneallaia’s lovers and collectors alike.

Reviews & Scores

“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. (…) This beautiful wine is hitting the market now, but collectors will want to put it straight into their cellars for safekeeping.” 98 Points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

TASTING NOTES

“A darker, more structured Barolo than his sibling, Prapo’ is an incredibly pure expression of the terroir of Serralunga. Precise notes of red and black berries, forest floor and dark spices are framed by tight woven tannins and lively freshness. An exciting release that has the potential to be enjoyed for the next 10 years.” Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

“Taut, elegant, ethereal expression of Nebbiolo. A purebred Barolo that entices with notes of red fruits, meadow flowers and just hints of Italian leather and spices. Already approachable, Cerretta will be a sure joy to revisit in five to ten years.” Armit Wines
