The desire to nurture the Estate’s exceptional qualities has shaped Ornellaia’s philosophy since the beginning. Ornellaia is a cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot and the faithful expression of unique terroir developed in harmony with nature.
"2014 was one of the most demanding years in memory of, and has allowed us to produce high quality wines that are offering great delight. The late ripening of the grapes allowed the fruit to fully express its liveliness and freshness. What is particularly striking is the high quality of the tannins on the palate: silky, refined, without rough edges. This year represents the heart of the estate, Ornellaia’s 'Essence': its natural style, the exceptional quality of its terroir, and the competence of those who work in the vineyards and the cellar." -Axel Heinz, 5/2015
