TUSCANY, ITALY 2018
Ornellaia was established in 1981 by Marchese Lodovico Antinori in Bolgheri and quickly established itself as one of the premier estates in the world. The vineyards were planted with the consultation of famed oenologist André Tchelistcheff, known as the father of California Cabernet, producing wines that shine with the essence of Tuscan sun but tempered by the nearby coastal breezes. Now of world-wide fame, Ornellaia boasts all of the elements to rightly deserve the attention it now garners—exceptional terroir, world-class winemaking facilities, an expert team and an innovative, creative side that keeps the sun-drenched winery pushing new boundaries.
As the legend of Ornellaia Rosso grows with each year, the 2006 vintage introduced the world to the Artist Series: a new artist each year, creating special labels for some bottles based on one word the winemaker thinks reflects the vintage. For the 2018 vintage winemaker Axel Heinz chose “La Grazia” (The Grace), saying “the 2018 vintage resulted in wines of particular harmony.” Today Concierge Sales has the extraordinary honor to present the iconic wines of Super Tuscan legend: Ornellaia, including the highly anticipated and collectible 13th edition of the estate’s Vendemmia d’Artisa. Each order of a six-pack wooden case will include five traditionally labeled bottles along with one bottle adorned with the specially designed label for the 2018 artist series (this year designed by acclaimed Belgian artist, Jan Fabre).
Also in today’s offer is their white release, Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia. Inspired by Bordeaux but always taking Tuscan terroir into first consideration, Ornellaia has once again created something uniquely tailored to their land and climate. The 2018 is a blend of 83% Sauvignon Blanc, 11% Vermentino, and 6% Viognier and offers up a vibrant palate of lemon zest, white flowers, mint, and honeydew. This rarity along with their legendary Rosso have ensured that fans of both white and red wine can anxiously wait for the new releases, something Concierge is proud to offer today.
