Ornellaia has dominated the competition for a whole generation. These opulent & explosive wines are built around a core of perfect Cabernet, and they age as well as the best Napa or Bordeaux wines.
Breathtaking elegance -- Jump on it – your kids (and grandkids) will thank you! Ornellaia – the name inspires reverent silence from wine lovers in every country.
Part of the founding fathers of the Super-Tuscan movement, this phenomenal Cabernet blend marries the power of Oakville to the towering structure of a Pauillac. Then it adds a bit of sexy intrigue, like the best Brunellos.
It’s an altogether breathtaking recipe, and one that’s been celebrated from the very beginning by critics and wine lovers alike.
About the wine
2014 was another outstanding Ornellaia in the talented hands of Axel Heinz.
Axel, patiently waited for the four varietals featured in this stupendous label to properly mature.
To say it was worth the wait is an understatement: This vibrantly hued, elegant selection captures the Toscana landscape at its most concentrated, as its taut burst of ripe, fruity expression and narrow structure.
Complex aromas of bright fruit are joined on the nose by hints of balsamic and fine spice notes.
This sets the table for a dense palate journey of fruit and spicy oak carried forth by hyper-focused mouthfeel. Smooth, young tannins shift the intensity to a lilting, velvety finish.

95 points, James Suckling
"Very floral and fresh with dark berry, lemon rind and hints of cloves and spice. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a pretty finish of fruit, smoke, toasted oak and more spice. Better in 2019. Outstanding for the vintage."
93-95 points, Wine Advocate (Barrel Score)
"This wine will be released in May 2016. The 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is an integrated and seamless blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Alex Heinz tells me that 2013 was a difficult vintage especially towards the early part of the growing season. It balanced out during the summer and allowed for steady ripening of fruit before the harvest. But 2013 was not as hot as 2011 and 2012 overall, and this edition of Ornellaia is beautifully tonic and shapely as a result. The bouquet is very developed in terms of aromas this year with beautiful notes of dark fruit, tobacco and spice. Those perfumes are just gorgeous. The mouthfeel is similarly intense with tannins that are still young, but are already silky and linear in nature. This vintage promises a long aging future."

“One of the best italian wines ever.” - Maria L.
“Wonderful nose of blackberry, blueberry, smoke, cedar, and leather. Huge body. Massive but smooth tannins. Very dry like a Bordeaux, but has the strength of a Napa. Amazing now, will be incredible in 15 years.” - Doug B.
