Ornellaia

Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia 2017

Toscana Bianco IGT

Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia is one of Italy's most innovative and progressive white wines, providing an altogether different experience of the Ornellaia estate and its Mediterranean influences.

Wine Spectator "This expressive white exudes peach, gooseberry, sage and white pepper flavors, backed by lively acidity and finishing with a saline accent. Sauvignon Blanc, Vermentino, Viognier and Verdicchio."

James Suckling "Honeysuckle, dried jasmine, daffodils, apricot pie and peach flan with some butterscotch undertones. Full-bodied and intense, but very precise in its delivery of sleek stone fruit and steely acidity."

Ornellaia Bianco 2016

IGT Toscana

Ornellaia Bianco is Italy's most ambitious white wine. It is a result of the Estate’s desire to translate the exceptional properties of its terroir not only into red wines, but also into this magnificent white.

Jeb Dunnuck "The star of the show with regard to the whites is unquestionably the 2016 Ornellaia Bianco. It's reminiscent of a great vintage of Domaine de Chevalier with its incredible purity,…

Le Volte dell’Ornellaia 2017

Toscana IGT

Le Volte dell’Ornellaia combines a Mediterranean expression of generosity with structure and complexity, reflecting the philosophy of Ornellaia. It represents the first step into the Ornellaia family, and is an ideal wine for everyday enjoyment.

James Suckling "An opulent Le Volte with ripe redcurrants, caramelized orange peel and lilacs on the nose. Medium body, fine but round tannins and a fruit-driven finish."

Wine Advocate "Lots of big, dark fruit and a lack of water in the grapes define the unique personality of the 2017 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia. This is a highly extracted and succulent…

Ornellaia Bianco 2015

IGT Toscana

Ornellaia Bianco is Italy's most ambitious white wine. It is a result of the Estate’s desire to translate the exceptional properties of its terroir not only into red wines, but also into this magnificent white.

Jeb Dunnuck "The 2015 Ornellaia Bianco is a more rounded, powerful white compared to the 2016 and has ripe, sexy notes of honeyed melon, white flowers, honeysuckle, and subtle minerality. While its…
