Ornellaia Bianco

2013 {(currentVariant.size?' | ':'')} {( currentVariant.size )}
Toscana IGT, Tuscany, Italy
Type White
Drink Now/Cellar

The 2013 vintage presents an intense yellow colour with green hints. Its aroma has rich floral and fruity notes, underscored by highly complex toasted tones. On the palate it is full-bodied, broad with a mature, sweet fruity flavour balanced by a lively, juicy acidity. The long finish concludes the tasting with toasted and mineral notes.

Reviewer: Antonio Galloni

The 2013 Ornellaia Bianco, a Sauvignon/Viognier blend that spent a year in barrel, is an addition to the range and the estate's most ambitious white wine to date. A host of lemon peel, white flowers, mint and slate are all beautifully delineated and totally vivid as this dazzling, crystalline white shows off its translucent energy. The Graves-inflected finish leaves a lasting impression. As good as the 2013 Bianco is - and it is terrific - its price is deeply troubling. Over the years, Ornellaia and Masseto have built impressive track records. As a result the prestige and price of the wines has gradually risen over time. That is understandable. But Tenuta dell'Ornellaia has no track record when it comes to making world-class whites. Pricing the Bianco in its first vintage inline with Ornellaia is risky, leaves no margin for error and is a hostile move towards the consumer.
