ORNELLAIA & MASSETO - SUPER TUSCAN MASTERCLASS
Tonight is a very special vertical tasting that we have been preparing for many years. Positioned in DOC Bolgheri district on the Tuscan coast of Western Italy, Tenuta dell'Ornellaia is one of the world's finest wine estates. For many connoisseurs, Ornellaia is more consistently excellent and polished than its immediate neighbour Sassicaia, the original 'Super Tuscan'. Ornellaia is also a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. We will be starting with two vintages from their younger vineyards, the second wine 'Le Serre Nuovo dell'Ornellaia' 2013 and 2014. Then we taste five vintages of Ornellaia itself, including some of the best of the past 20 years. 'Ornellaia' 2015, 2014, 2011, 2006 and 2001. Finally we will end with a wine we have never opened before, the legendary 100 point 'Masseto' 2015. At almost $1500 a bottle, this is one of the greatest wines in the world. It has been produced by Ornellaia since 1986, from 100% Merlot on a special single vineyard site of pure clay. Don't miss this once in a lifetime chance to experience these incredible wines.
