Sauvignon Blanc A'Poggio Alle Gazzea' Ornellaia 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 vintage was among the coolest and latest-ripening in recent years and yielded one of the most elegant expressions of Ornellaia. A deep ruby hue announces remarkable complexity on the nose, releasing heady fragrances of dark wild berry, pungent spice, and smooth pipe tobacco. The palate is finesse par excellence, with silky tannins and bright, clean-edged fruit, crowned with a finish boasting impressively racy tannins." --Winemaker's Notes

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia:
Production dictated by the nature of the vintage, hand-harvesting only when the grapes are fully ripe, the grapes of the individual vineyards fermented separately, in the respect of a unique and precious terroir. These are just a few of the choices made by Ornellaia, following a philosophy that aims for quality from the beginning. Thanks to the women and men who throw their hearts, heads and so... Read more

Pretty nose of red and black berry. Leans dark red and has some nice floral aromas. Rich and elegant structure with flavors of red cherry, flowers, mint, licorice and has nice freshness and structure. Firm tannin. Tasty blend! 90 pts. 12/8/12

Intensives Rubin mit dunkel-violetten Reflexen und leichter Aufhellung zum Rand; die Nase bemerkenswert komplex und elegant. Warme Aromen von dunklen, kleinen Beeren, Zwetschgen, Lakritze, etwas Vanille und Pfeiffentabak. Im Gaumen ausgesprochen finessenreich. Feingliedrige Tannine von bester Qualität, sauber akzentuzierte Aromen, wiederum viel schwarze Frucht. Herrlich elegante Textur, eine perfekt eingebundene, unterstützende Säure. Der Abgang ist kernig und von sehr langer, aromatischer Nachhaltigkeit.

Exhibits truly stunning aromatics. A vigorous Cabernet Sauvignon and a fruit-rich, lusciously-rounded Merlot compose a balanced cuv e marked by fragrant tobacco leaf, intense fruit notes and spices.

Intensives, leuchtendes Rubin; in der Nase verführerisch elegant. Nach schwarzen Johannisbeeren, Tabak, Kakao, Zedernholz und warmen Gewürzen duftend. Vielschichtige Aromadecke. Im Gaumen sehr dicht mit kompakter Struktur. Dichtemaschiges Tannin. Noten von Zartbitterschokolade, edlem Holz, schwarzen Beeren wie Cassis, einem Hauch Vanille. Komplexe Aromatik. Der Abgang präsentiert sich lange und perfekt ausbalanciert.

Der «Le Serre Nuove» wird wie sein grösserer Bruder «Ornellaia» vinifiziert. Lediglich die Reifezeit in französischen Barriques ist 6 Monate kürzer, so dass der Serre Nuove schneller zugänglich wird. Die In der Nase zeigt er dunkle Beeren und Kirschen mit wunderbar würzigen Tönen. Im Gaumen perfektes Gleichgewicht zwischen Konzentration und Dichte und lang anhaltend. Ein eleganter und edler Wein.

A muscular, impenetrable red, with tightly wound tannins guiding the black cherry, plum, herb, soy and oak spice flavors. Monolithic today, this needs time to find equilibrium. Best from 2016 through 2032.

The 2010 Le Serre Nuove dell Ornellaia shows off tons of concentration and sheer depth. Mocha espresso dark cherries and plums are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. The 2010 is a decidedly powerful virile wine endowed with considerable power. It will be interesting to see how the layers of flavor flesh out once the wine has been bottled. For now the 2010 is a highly promising Serre Nuove. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
