Ornellaia Ornellaia 2015 6L Bottle
Awesome 6 Liter Size. Comes with a great wooden box to ship separately.
Tenuta dell'Ornellaia was founded in 1981, in a beautiful, unspoiled part of Tuscany. From the outset, the mission was to produce outstanding wines. Since then passion and dedication, coupled with a unique terroir and an extraordinary microclimate, have brought the Tenuta dell'Ornellaia's prestigious labels great success and recognition as one of the most important wineries in the world. Made of a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and a dollup of Petit Verdot, the 2008 is destined to become one of the true Tuscan stunners of the decade. Hand picked fruit is sorted at the winery, de-stemmed and crushed gently. The wine is fermented in oak barrels (70% new and 30% one year), then aged in small barriques for 18 months.

Wine SpectatorA big, brooding red, packed with blackberry, plum and earth flavors, all wrapped in spicy oak. Monolithic now, finishing with saline mineral elements, a leafy tobacco edge and dense, mouthcoating tannins. Terrific potential. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2038. 2,300 cases imported.
