For a long time I was unconvinced wines made from French varieties made in Italy. One wine stands out as changing my mind, 1990 Ornellaia, thanks Lou!
Beautifully balanced and poised it was poured at an open wine night where the only criterion was that it had to be bloody good!
Today we offer 3 wines from the epic 2015 Vintage in Tuscany all with outrageous scores, think 2 x 98 Points, 2 x 99 Points and 2 x 100 Points!
All are made with Bordeaux varieties with a splash of Sangiovese in the Solaia.
Ornellaia is undoubtedly the refined lady of the estate. 53% Cabernet Sauvignon 23% Merlot 17% Cabernet Franc 7% Petit Verdot
An insane wine 100% Merlot, it’s typically massive a powerful wine for those that love the big and bold. Masseto is the brutish master of the estate.
Cabernet Sauvignon dominant with a decent splash of both Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese.
