Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Sauvignon Blanc Toscana Poggio Alla Gazze 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A small production white from the world famous House of Ornellaia. This is a large-scaled Tuscan beauty that is for fans of rich white wines. Look for aromas of peaches and herbs with tropical fruit and honey.A remarkably smooth mouthfeel with warmth and breadth. A subtle touch of vanilla from oak balanced with good acidity.[100% Sauvignon Blanc]

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

Een leuk detail is dat de Serre Nuove per ongeluk is ontstaan bij het produceren van de super Ornellaia. Er werd een blend gemaakt om de keuze voor de juiste houten vaten te kunnen maken om de Ornellaia in te kunnen laten rijpen. Dit bleek van dermate hoge kwaliteit te zijn dat de heren van Ornellaia besloten het op de markt te brengen als Le Serre Nuove. De kleur van deze wijn is intens donker rood met duidelijke paarse tonen en komt enorm geconcentreerd over. In de neus profileert hij zich als krachtig en intens. Veel compact donker fruit wordt fraai gecombineerd met een mooie kruidigheid. Naast de bosbes herkennen we de geur als, ietsje aards, jammig, leer. De mooie verwovenheid van de houttoon met koffie, kaneel en chocolade geeft de wijn een complex karakter. In de mond herkennen we weer veel donker fruit en een enorme geconcentreerdheid. Het alcohol komt wat fors over. De subtiele zuren zijn heel mooi in balans met de smaakintensiteit van de wijn. De afdronk is krachtig en enorm lang te noemen. Heerlijk. Je kunt hier wel een tijdje van nagenieten. 91/100 Supersnobs.nl

The 2009 vintage of this amazing wine from this legendary winery is here, and it does not disappoint. On the palate, silky-smooth and spacious, with glossy tannins. A lively, refreshing acidity lifts a lingering finish.

The 2007 Le Volte, Ornellaiarsquo;s entry-level wine, is especially opulent in this vintage. A soft, generous red, the wine offers terrific richness and depth in its ripe, perfumed fruit. Sweet scents of French oak linger on the long finish. This generous, seductive wine should continue to drink well over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2012.

The 1996 is a particularly successful example of this robust, fleshy, dry red wine. The color is dark ruby, and the wine offers up copious quantities of sweet jammy cherry and berry fruit. Mouthfilling, rich, and expansive, with good flesh, and a touch of wood, this uncomplicated, but immensely satisfying red wine can be drunk now, an over the next 3ndash;4 years. This excellent value from the winery responsible for Ornellaia is a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in small oak casks and bottled unfiltered.

From the notable super Tuscan estate Ornellaia, this Sangiovese blend flaunts its pedigree with pristine fruit and skilled winemaking. Simultaneously savory and ripe, with red cherry, sweet shiitake and plum flavors amplified on the palate. The superb balance and purity of texture, along with fine tannins on the finish, add to the winersquo;s fully satisfying impression.

The estatersquo;s 2004 Le Volte, the entry-level wine, is a fresh, vinous effort with pretty aromatics, sweet ripe red fruit and herb flavors and an accessible personality. It is best enjoyed over the next three or four years. Anticipated maturity: 2007ndash;2010.
