SKU: 20458 Categories: ,


This is the newest wine to join the portfolio of one of Italy's most prestigious estates. The 2013 Bianco Ornellaia is an IGT Toscana blend of 70% Sauvignon and 30% Viognier. (The wine does not qualify to be part of the Bolgheri Bianco appellation because the percentage of Sauvignon Blanc is too big.) White wines have always been in production at Ornellaia, but this is the first time the estate shows such a high level of ambition and execution. The Viognier clones were sourced from neighbor Michele Satta. Both varieties are fermented in barrique and then rest on the lees for one year. The bouquet delivers delicate tones of stone fruit and white almond. The wine shows a beautiful sense of linearity and drying mineral focus. 94/100 RP
