The desire to nurture the Estate’s exceptional qualities has shaped Ornellaia’s philosophy since the beginning. Ornellaia is a cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot and the faithful expression of unique terroir developed in harmony with nature.
A particularly dark and young colour is the prelude to a complex nose of black berries, spices and cedar. The palate is rich and dense, balanced by a refined and firm tannic structure, lifted by a juicy and bright acidity.

Ornellaia Toscana Bianco 2016
Sauvignon Blanc 100%
21 months aging
The desire to nurture the Estate’s exceptional qualities has shaped Ornellaia’s philosophy since the beginning. Ornellaia Bianco is a blend with a majority of Sauvignon Blanc coming from three small vineyards that have demonstrated their remarkable capacity to express the unique character of Ornellaia.
Although typically dry and sunny, 2016 has benefitted from beautiful conditions for the ripening, particularly cool nights, favourable to the aromatic expression and acidity, while the absence of summer rain has led to rich and concentrated grapes. All these elements flow into a great version of Ornellaia Bianco. Golden colour, perfectly ripe citrus fruit and minerals on the nose. On the palate the wine literally spreads out to coat the palate with its richness, while a steely and juicy acidity refreshes the finish.
