Bolgheri Superiore, Tenuta dell’Ornellaia, Tuscany, Italy, 1996
£40 per 100ml glass. Current wine list price - £330.00
This weekend, you will have the great opportunity to taste one of the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon based wines produced outside Bordeaux. Ornellaia released their first vintage back in 1985.The estate was established by Marchese Lodovico Antinori under the advice of the famous winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff.
The Frescobaldi family has been the owner of the winery since 2005. The blend is composed of a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and some Petit Verdot. The wine shows a great evolution of leather, cloves and black pepper as well as notes of black truffle, coffee beans and cigar box. The palate offers a fantastic concentration of ripe dark fruit such has blackberries and blackcurrant, a hint of dry violet and chocolate. The finish is long and the tannins remains very velvety. The richness and concentration of the wine would work greatly with our beef dish.
Please reserve your glass with reception before 7pm on Friday 6th & Saturday 7th March 2015.
