From our Wine Director:
"Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Ornellaia is unquestionably one of Tuscany's, and the world's, most iconic wines. In 2016, which is a classic vintage for Tuscany, it is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. I tasted it approximately a month ago, and it is absolutely glorious. Young of course, but beautiful ripe dark fruits, very elegant with firm tannins that promise a very long life. The critics agree with me, with everyone awarding nearly perfect scores to this magnificent wine. And, in each six-bottle case, there is one bottle with a painting by artist Shirin Neshat called "La Tensione" which was commissioned for this vintage embossed on the label. La Tensione is a reference to the dynamic tension in this very, very special wine."
