In Tuscany, the 2016 vintage was a winemakers dream in terms of quality. 2016 Super Tuscans have proved to be highly aromatic and deeper in color since the grape skins were thinner. These wines have gained respect and impressed many top wine critics. 2016 is looking to be a cellar-worthy vintage!
The 2016 Ornellaia was reviewed as: “An astoundingly vibrant, powerful and concentrated Ornellaia that has a wealth of intense dark cherries, mulberries and plums with hints of espresso, dark cocoa powder and cedar. The concentrated palate is framed in long, regal tannins that bring focus to the plush, ripe and fresh black cherries and dark plums. Extremely balanced. Best from 2025.” (James Suckling).
