ABOUT THE WINE
Founded in 1981 by Marchese Lodovico Antinori, Ornellaia began as a project to explore the possibilities offered by Bordeaux varieties in the rolling hills of Bolgheri. The estate rose to prominence as the vineyards matured in the 1990s, under the watchful eye of Michel Rolland as consulting oenologist, and was controversially acquired by the Frescobaldi family via Robert Mondavi, to whom Lodovico sold the estate in 2002. The esteem in which the estate is held is such that the appellation of Bolgheri Superiore DOC was created specifically for Ornellaia, and for other wines made in its image.

TASTING NOTES
Despite a challenging vintage, the estate is justifiably proud of the 2013 Ornellaia. Cool yet sunny weather allowed for a slow ripening which has imbued the wine with exceptional balance and aromatic quality hence L' Eleganza, the name chosen to represent the style of this vintage. Vibrant and nuanced on the palate, with a delicate tannic structure that will soften with age, and a long, refreshing finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Excellent with the dark meat from poultry and game-birds, perfect for a wild boar stew, a quintessentially Tuscan treat.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Each case of Ornellaia contains one bottle with a special label painted by Japanese artist Yutaka Sone, with an image of a picnic in a Tuscan marble quarry; almost as pretty as the wine itself!
