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.

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.

Poured from the special anniversary bottle, the 2010 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is a truly outstanding wine that leaves a lasting memory for those who are lucky enough to enjoy it. What stands out is the absolutely seamless-seamless-seamless (yes, it's worth repeating three times) integration of its many moving parts. The wine magically transitions from cherry, spice, chocolate and espresso in one melodic and continuous loop. It exudes balance and elegance over long, delicious minutes. It is profoundly impressive. Anticipated maturity: 2016–2030. Of all the grapevines planted on the Ornellaia estate, the 2010 vintage showed best results with Merlot, says Leonardo Raspini. Because the harvest was later than usual, the early-ripening grape enjoyed a slow and steady evolution.

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 Ornellaia celebrates the wine’s 25th anniversary, and it could not have been a more spectacular vintage. It opens with aromas of crushed blue flowers, black berries, pipe tobacco and thyme that give way to an elegant, structured and polished palate. It delivers intense blackberry flavors layered with white pepper, Mediterranean herbs, mineral and mocha brightened by fresh acidity alongside smooth, velvety tannins. This will age and develop for decades. Drink 2016–2040.

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.
