By Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

2013 Ornellaia from Tenuta dell’Ornellaia, Tuscany, Italy

Casting my mind back to the 2013 vintage in Tuscany, I recall some extraordinary climatic rhythms that bore forth the splendid offering that is the 2013 Ornellaia from Tenuta dell’Ornellaia. Harnessing the natural tension of a slightly cooler growing year, with perfectly timed rainfall in July and a sunny August and September, the producers cultivated grapes of unparalleled composition, both for investment and indulgence.


Delineated Depth – A Cardholder of True Tuscan Sophistication

A tasteful acknowledgement of its roots, this esteemed Super Tuscan wine reflects a harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. The aromatics on offer are a quiet study in complexity, seductively mingling dark fruit compote notes with undertones of peppery spice and fresh Mediterranean herbs – indubitably Italian!

An emphatic mouthful reveals an authoritative wine with gracefully sculpted tannins and refreshing acidity that contrive to give structure to the bountiful layers of flavour. Waves of blackberries and ripe plums vie with shards of dark chocolate and nuances of oaky spice in this intricately wrought fine wine from Italy.


Savour the Investment – Sophisticated Sailing in Stormy Seas

The uncanny knack displayed by Tenuta dell'Ornellaia for consistently crafting wines of exceptional quality is worth admiring in any vintage. In 2013 however, their acumen embraces a new dimension as they convert an unusually challenging harvest season into an opportunity for creating this profound rumination – a true testament to their wine-making prowess.

With adequate ageing potential and a reputation that resonates among the connoisseurs, the 2013 Ornellaia makes for a dynamic and diversified addition to any fine wine investment portfolio.


Fine Wine Realised - A Testament to Tuscan Tenacity

The 2013 Ornellaia stands as a salient testament to the tenacious spirit of Tenuta dell’Ornellaia. While portraying the distinct attributes of this vintage year, it also affirms the consistent quality leveraged by the estate, making it not just an enjoyable bottle, but also an investment-wise choice.

Opulence meets balance in this superbly crafted vinous amalgam, securing its place as an invaluable favourite for those appreciating the very best varietal translations from Italy's Tuscany region. A quaffable delight and a wise investment that deepens the bouquet of any sophisticated collection.
