98 Points - limited           New release of one of Italy's most iconic wines, Ornellaia.                                                     97 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "A stunning wine, the 2017 Ornellaia offers a captivating interplay of richness and energy. Picking early was the key. Young vine Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc were harvested in August for the first time ever. In the glass, the 2017 offers up an enticing mélange of mocha, cedar, tobacco and licorice, with soft curves that add to its sensuality and allure. The 2017 is sumptuous and racy, as Ornellaias from warmer years tend to be, but it is not at all heavy or overdone. In a word: superb! Drinking window: 2025 – 2042." For the 12th edition of Ornellaia Vendemmia d’Artista Tomás Saraceno invites us to reflect on the impact of our actions on the planet as he interprets the character "Solare" (radiant) of Ornellaia 2017. The artist has created a site-specific masterpiece for the Estate, customized a limited series of 111 large format bottles, and designed a special label that, a single example of which, will be found in each Ornellaia case containing 6 bottles of 750 ml.
