Ornellaia is a prestigious winery located in Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy. Known for its Bordeaux-style red blends, Ornellaia crafts wines using Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. The wines undergo ageing in oak barrels for 12 to 18 months, resulting in elegant and complex expressions. Ornellaia's wines are highly regarded for their ability to age gracefully and showcase the unique terroir of Bolgheri.

Ornellaia is a blend of nature and musing. Complex ancient soils converse through human wisdom with a delicate microclimate that is echoed and reflected in the Mediterranean Sea. Prolonged ageing accompanies the estate’s fine wine in achieving its utmost expression, revealing finesse and generosity over time.

Vintage 2012
The 2012 growing year was characterized by dry conditions, similar to 2011, with a noticeable water scarcity during a cold and dry winter. Despite a water deficit of about 100mm compared to the average, budbreak occurred normally. A mild and sunny spring facilitated good vine growth and consistent flowering. July and August were hot and nearly rain-free, raising concerns about ripening due to lack of water. However, veraison progressed normally and satisfactorily. Some rainfall in late August and early September helped accelerate ripening, resulting in overall fine fruit maturity with optimal aromatics and polyphenol levels. The harvest for Merlot took place from August 29th to September 17th, starting on September 18th for Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot in younger vineyards, and concluding with Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon in the oldest vineyards.

Winemaker's notes
This generous wine displays a particularly enticing character. The concentration that defines top vintages is not lacking, but the 2012 conceals it behind a sumptuous body with a long-lasting finish.” - wrote on May 2014 by Axel Heinz (Winemaker)

Ratings :
JS 97 points from JS Wine Ratings
“A tight and silky red with compacted fruit and tannin texture featuring blackcurrant, mushroom and bark undertones. Full body, firm tannins and a minerally finish. Excellent structure and mouthfeel. A cooler style of Ornellaia, bringing it back to the classicism of this celebrated region. Bordeaux blend.” - Tasted on August 5, 2015 by James Suckling

RP 94 points from The Wine Advocate
“The 2012 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is very similar to the 2011 Ornellaia that precedes it. These were both hot vintages, but 2012 saw the heat towards the end of the growing season. In fact the harvest in 2012 came two weeks earlier than average. This seamless blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (56%), Merlot (27%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (7%) shows some of the roundness and softness of that summer heat. The wine's density and extraction are spot-on and the bouquet is beautifully shaped by dark cherry nuances with spice, leather and tobacco at the back. There is a gorgeous sense of richness and plushness here. Some 160,000 bottles were produced. This edition of Ornellaia is more immediate in character and less suited to the decades-long aging that cooler vintages can affront so successfully.” - Tasted on Oct 30, 2015 by Monica Larner

這款慷慨的葡萄酒展現出特別迷人的特質。頂級年份所具備的濃郁氣息並未缺席,但2012年的酒款將其隱藏在一個豪華的酒體中,並帶有持久的收結。」- Axel Heinz(釀酒師)於2014年5月撰寫。

JS Wine Ratings評鑒給予97分:
「這款緊實而絲滑的紅酒擁有緊實的果實和單寧結構,帶有黑醋栗、蘑菇和樹皮的底色。酒體飽滿,單寧結實,收結帶有礦物質。結構和口感出色。這款Ornellaia呈現出較涼爽的風格,回歸了這個備受讚譽的產區的經典主義。波爾多混釀。」- James Suckling於2015年8月5日品評。

The Wine Advocate給予的評分為94分:
「2012年的波爾格里超級特級酒Ornellaia與之前的2011年款非常相似。這兩個年份都是炎熱的年份,但2012年的熱量主要集中在生長季節的結尾。事實上,2012年的收成比平均時間提前了兩個星期。這款混釀酒由56%赤霞珠、27%梅洛、10%品麗珠和7%寶麗多組成,展現了夏季熱量的某些圓潤和柔和特性。酒體的濃度和提取物都非常出色,香氣則以黑櫻桃的細微差異為特色,並在背後帶有香料、皮革和煙草的氣息。這款酒展現出了華麗的豐富感和柔軟感。總計生產了約16萬瓶。這款Ornellaia較為直接,不像涼爽年份那樣適合長期陳年。」- Monica Larner於2015年10月30日評論。
