A Bordeaux blend first, yet with roots deep in Tuscan character, Ornellaia now produces one of the top wines in Italy, vintage after vintage. This has much to do with winemaker Axel Heinz, with his strict selection in the vineyard and the cellar, assuring that only the highest quality fruit makes it into the final blend. While the 2011 vintage gave us an extroverted and opulent Ornellaia, 2012 is a return to the classic structure and cool- toned fruit which put this property on the map in the first place. The 2012 Ornellaia is sure to go down as one of their greatest vintages. ✦ Tenuta dell'ornellaia ornellaia 2012 JS 97 » $225 "Excellent structure and mouthfeel.
